Vacuum cleaner or robot superhero?

LG's design looks suspiciously cartoonish

Compressor Vacuum Cleaner Pocket-lint

LG isn't fooling anyone. In developing its first vacuum cleaner, the electronics maker predictably touted all kinds of techie features, such as "a RotaBlade that is in the rocket shaped drum, which is attached to an additional motor moving side-to-side compacting household dust into solid cubes," according to Pocket-lint.

But we know the real strategy: It wanted the "Compressor Vacuum Cleaner" to look like a Transformer. And it's done a splendid job, by the way--at first glance, we were sure it was a new version of "Optimus Prime" or some other mechanical superhero. After all, we already know of robots that turn into vacuum cleaners and even do the dishes.
