When the day arrives that humanoid robots are an integral part of human society, one can only hope they aren't as terrifying beautiful as the HENGE robot. The art piece/robot model is the creation of Japanese designer Tomoo Yamaji, and is exquisite not just for its tech aesthetic, but also for its simplicity.
Set up on a stationary stand for display, the model won't talk back to you or walk around, but as a futurist conversation piece representing your robot lust, it's pretty much perfect. The model is available for 100,000 yen ($1,090) here and you can see video of the HENGE going through its various transformations here.
