Giant Citroen DS transformer

Perhaps you've seen the Citroen transformer commercials like this one:

In the March 2007 issue of Wired, a real-life Citroen transformer, built by Amorphic Robot Works with help from Squid Labs (particularly Corwin and Geo), got a nice, one-page writeup. I've included the page here, and you can also check out some more pictures here.

I remember Corwin and Geo sweating quite a few bullets as they painstakingly took the initial idea, put it into CAD, animated it, checked for collisions, and finally did a safety analysis all on a tight deadline.

Ok so it may be resurrecting an old thread, but I found this and thought it was cool =]
