Brave Robotics has successfully created a fully functioning, 3D-printed transformer robot that's considerably more sophisticated than other attempts we've seen. The black and yellow remote-controlled car can transform into a walking robot, and features a Wi-Fi camera, headlights, and the ability to shoot little darts from its arms. Since 2002, Brave Robotics has produced a number of prototypes for the project, which evolved from a simple pair of legs to a full robot to the impressively detailed beast you see below — all with the help of a self-built 3D printer. Check out the robot in action below, and you can see the full history of the project on Brave Robotics' YouTube.

Thanks Notryan!
