Though not quite a Gobot, this innovative roadster called the Blackbird, having recently won several accolades from international film juries, is a camera carriage whose frame can be adjusted so after some computer-aided rendering, can morph, getting the dimensions exactly right, into any make and model of automobile that one wishes to portray. Not only is it a good understudy for commercials, shooting several different cars at the same time in rugged, dramatic landscapes where their actual drivers will probably never venture without the expense of dispatching a fleet of vehicles (the cars having actually never ventured there either, I suppose), but is also good for filming convincing chase scenes without collateral damage.
