Chinese Man’s Home-Made ‘Transformer’ Gets Pulled Over by Beijing Police While Out for a Spin

A talented Chinese DIY inventor was embarrassingly pulled over by Beijing police after he casually took his “Transformer” out for a spin.

A video believed to have been posted on Chinese social media on Aug. 23 starts off with the robot slowly making its way on the road in suburban Beijing, according to Shanghaiist.

The massive robotic vehicle attracted much attention from the public.

However, police were not as enthusiastic about the giant vehicle roaming around the streets of Beijing.

The owner of the “Transformer” was reportedly pulled over and asked to stop what he was doing.

He eventually follows the officers and, in what appears to be a walk of shame, slowly drives away with his robot.
