Project Nomad Leaps out of the Next Transformers Movie
by Mark R
Take a gander at Project Nomad, a wonderful and artificial horse. As you can see, it looks like a four-legged version of Bumblebee from Transformers.
When I saw this one, I knew it was too good to be true. Sure enough, it is still a concept, but the fact that Jason Battersby saw it fit to put it on paper is a step in the right direction for making all our dreams of riding a robot horse come true.
I’m sure that readers who follow my work know that I love to cover concept tech like this, especially when it seems so futuristic that it could never be built in my lifetime. This one has a very unbelievable feature: a GPS that knows where the plant life is. Project Nomad then eats up the vegetation, and uses it for fuel.
Perhaps this is why the designers might have put the Greenpeace logo on its flank. I’m not certain why a giant stone hand is jutting up from the ground to crush it, but I suppose we’ll find out in Transformers 3.
In fact, maybe that film should feature a race between Project Nomad and Bumblebee. Of course, since they are both the same color, it would be difficult to tell who was winning.
