Seibertron.com member icu2jimy has posted some very interesting information pertaining to the US Government and transforming machines.

In what you would think would come straight out of the live action movie, comes news that the U.S. Department of Defense is looking for a way to manipulate "Transformers" technology.

In a report posted on Breitbart.tv, US officials at the Pentagon are trying to develop mechanical types materials that can change form on command. Now before you start thinking "Oh Yes! The Wreckers are coming to life!", the technology thats being researched is at primary stages of practical use. Several university teams are looking into different ways to make "programmable matter"—made of individual pieces that can self-assemble into tools or spare parts. One of the approaches being used uses sheets of self-folding matter that can form three-dimensional shapes on command.

That is simply amazing. I have heard of this before and dare I say that it is out of Area 51 (conspiracy theory) but it looks like it is fast becoming a reality! The world will change if this comes to pass.

yeah we're screwed. You know the people who made this have already made skynet. And once those two combine, well in the words of the great Rattrap....... "we're all gonna die".

Sounds cool enough, especially when Bill talks about it. But it's also downright scary.

Cool! I remember NASA was working on some kind of warping wing/airfoil that could change according to demands and atmospheric conditions. The automatically adjustable radio antenna is a great idea :)

SWEET! This means someday I can go camping without dealing with those F*****g collapsable, folding poles!

The Military and Law Enforcement applications are bound to be pretty cool too. By altering the design within given layers of Body Armor mesh, especially after one portion has sustained damage, certains areas could be "patched over" or panel sections realigned in certain spots to give added protection and potentially save lives or limbs during hostile situations. Same principle could be employed in vehicle armor or on future shuttlecraft for damaged portions. Space saving applications are about to go through the roof as well. Why so many people have a doom and gloom outlook on future-tech, I'll never understand.
If anyone is afraid of it just watch the last five minutes of "Escape From L.A." with Kurt Russel. Problem Solved. :grin:

If they can make Blackout land on an enemy base and transform and throw tanks, that would be cool.

If you were a machine and you became self aware in the midst of 7 billion members of the human race, don't you think the logical course of action would be to take your own life instead? :P :lol:

I'll make sure to keep my Dad away from it then. So far there has been nothing so advanced (that I've found) that a redneck that THINKS he knows what he's doing can't "F" it up. :lol:

Hey, Bay says he's in tight with the military. His was one of the only operations running full steam ahead during the strikes, he completed it in an amzingly short time and still pulled off a movie that is blowing records away. I smell a conspiracy brewing here. :P 8-} :lol:

Full steam ahead with no script. I spoke with a guy who works on the Paramount lot and he said (and the writers will confirm this) all the crew had was a 30 page outline to work off of. No script really. Explosions are nice and pretty and all, but don't really mean anything if u don't have a solid story/script. The writers were on set making everything up on the day as they went on. That's no way to shoot a movie. The guy also told me Bay has one of the top worst reputations in Hollywood. Is anti-union, worked illegally during the strike - etc. Even had to deal with him a few times - basically a bigtime db. I wanted to like Mike, but this sealed the deal for me when I heard this. Spielberg so should've went with a different director -or even done it himself. Wtf was he thinking??
