Created in collaboration with Hasbro, the Xiaomi 'Soundwave' tablet toy is essentially a tablet that transforms from device, to robot in a matter of moments. Although the Xiaomi 'Soundwave' doesn't work as a traditional tablet, the fact that it transitions from such a device into a complex robot toy is impressive.

The Xiaomi 'Soundwave' is currently being crowdfunded by the brand to bring the product to fruition. It features a 30-step folding assembly that transitions the tablet toy from unsuspecting device, to an impressive robot quickly and easily.

Transformer toys of the past were traditionally crafted to look like buildings or animals that could then transform into robots. The Xiaomi 'Soundwave' as a tablet that transforms into a robot identifies a common technology element in a child's life and expands on it.
