Toshiba Creates Actual Transforming Phone

{mosimage}Toshiba has announced its own "Real Gear Transformer," except this time… it's actually a real gear transformer. In Japan (of course), Toshiba will be releasing the Softbank 815T PB, which is a working 3G cellphone that sprouts arms and legs to become a li'l robot. The phone even comes with wallpaper "faces" and a built-in talking avatar that "learns" how to respond to its owner.

No word yet on price, or a release outside Japan. Check out the original article on, and discuss in this thread.
