Xiaomi Made a Toy Tablet that Turns into a Transformers Robot

Xiaomi Made a Toy Tablet that Turns into a Transformers Robot

By Mariella Moon

Hasbro and the Chinese company launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund its production.

Xiaomi and Hasbro gave Soundwave, the Transformers robot that can turn into a microcasette recorder, a makeover fit for the new era. The two teamed up to create a tablet that unfolds into a shiny 190mm version of the Decepticon. Xiaomi’s international division VP Hugo Barra said on Facebook that his team “worked really hard to ensure that [its] color, details and feel are exactly the same as” the Mi Pad 2. You’ll need to be a bit of a puzzle lover to enjoy assembling and disassembling it, since it takes 30 steps to each time to do so, but that just makes it more fun to play with.

Of course, it would’ve been better if the tablet actually works, but hey — the transforming gadget costs only 169 Yuan or around $26. At least that’s the smallest amount its crowdfunding backers could pledge to get one. If you’re hoping for a wider release, cross your fingers, because it’s not entirely impossible when the companies’ campaign raised over thrice its goal.
