Robot Heli-Bi-Wheel

Autobots transform!  While this transforming robot probably won’t be protected the planet from other maniacal robots bent on evil, it might one day help in surveillance or search and rescue.  The Center for Distributed Robotics at the University of Minnesota have built a small bi-wheeled robot that can transform in to a helicopter.

The robot uses two independent motor systems to allow for the difference between land and air travel. 

Words can’t do it justice. Luckily, we have video.
