The guys at Japan’s Seahope, known for many a cool digital watch – have partnered up with Takara Tomy to produce a new timepiece inspired by the Transformers.

Aero Spider Laser Cars Drive on Walls, Follow Laser Beams, Confuse Cats
Takara Tomy’s latest remote-control car is definitely unique. Not only does the Aero Spider Laser drive on walls or ceilings, it goes where you tell it to using a light gun.
