World's First Drivable Transformers costume

This man has created the most amazing thing ever. He recently came onto American Idol with it, and it featured the noise of a transformer transforming when he transformed! I WANT ONE!

News'd and fixed. This is too awesome for words. :D
"When there's gold feathers, punch behind you!!"

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

Next thing you know, we'll have mech suites (I think that's what they're called) like the one in the movie!

Well, we have had humans that turn into Autobots and Decepticons before. ;)

Yeah, I'm really not sure I want to go back to an era where humans turn into Autobots and Decepticons. But you're right, that costume is totally too cool for words!

Seriously!? Dude, Masterforce was EPIC! One of the best series I've ever seen, IMHO. It's up there in my favorites right below Beast Wars and Animated! 8-)

I think it could still use some work and refining. The back wheels weren't touching the ground which meant that his legs were scratching and slowing the whole thing down.

I think he's got some small rollers in the knee area of the suit as not to build up friction.
