If the 1.5-ton monster reminded you of something out of the Transformers series, the man behind the futuristic dream is none other than Vitaly Bulgarov, who also counts the Terminator franchise and Robocop in his conceptual design portfolio.
Over two years and investments reaching $200 million have gone into the gigantic creation, managed by Bulgarov and a team of 30 engineers, though the company reveals that they are still a work in progress. The company expects to unveil the final product in late 2017, when the robot goes on sale for $8.3 million.
