These self assembly robots are much better than your average Transformer – or even Robosapien.

The M-TRAN II robot, developed by the Japanese Distributed Systems Design Research Group, is made up of a dozen of modules. Each has two linking blocks. The can each rotate 180 degrees around the link that connects them. Each module has a switchable magnet inside which means it can link to more modules in the system, says We Make Money Not Art.

Our robot future has only just began folks.
