OmniZero.9 multi format biped

There are so many biped bots circulating the web that we tend to overlook them. This one caught our eye this morning due to its interesting ability to change its layout. Named OmniZero.9, this biped can drive on 4 wheels like a car, walk like a biped, and even carry a person. While it certainly doesn’t look like the most comfortable mode of transportation, it looks less awkward than some of the latest “innovations” coming from big names.

    I’d be more impressed if it could actually _walk_ instead of just kinda shuffling…

    Wow, so this really is becoming just a news site.

    Suggestion: Why not have 2 different sites: Hack a Day, and Hack a day news. Maybe even a 3rd site hack a day projects…

    Don’t get your hopes up futuristic readers, the tech @ 1:14 may find its way into our toilets at best.

    Dan K:

    I totally agree. I head to other sites for my tech news. I come here for hacks. Is http://www.hackadaynews.com taken? If not, articles like this should move there so the hacks can be made a priority on here.

    As for the bot: Excellent. I was hoping to see the guy ride it in wheel mode, though.

    @ListerStorm

    Japanese stores often play Auld Lang Syne towards the time for them to close. Judging by some of the movement in the background, I would assume this may be the case as it looks like the clean up crew at work.

    I for one welcome our mobile-toilet-equipped overlords.

    @Dan and Japkin,
    only the original style hacks get tagged with “classic hacks” click that, on the right hand column, and you’ll get what you are looking for.
