Transforming linear robot

But, is it a Decepticon?

A building block of art is the line.  It can be two or three-dimensional, descriptive, implied or abstract.  A line can be whatever your imagination wills it to be.  MIT has taken this concept and build a transforming robot around it.  The LineFORM is short of amazing given its straightforward design. At heart, it’s nothing more than a series of motors that twist and turn into a myriad of shapes.  In practice, these shapes have the potential to improve our interactions with technology with the simple elegance of a well-designed line.  Watch the video below and read more at MIT Media Lab.
