You know we love gadgets, and you know we love robots -- yes, they're often enough mutually exclusive, ok? -- but you know we've got mad love for the idea of the ultimate 80s robot sci-fi franchise, Transformers, taking a cue from today's most popular consumer electronics and giving them bit parts in the upcoming 2007 live-action adaptation. If a supposedly leaked Transformers script is to be believed, the iPod, Xbox 360, and even a plasma TV (or two) will fulfill some fantasies and/or nightmares by proving to be self-actuated artificially intelligent beings bent on war; of course, it would be a little too typical to say the iPod's an Autobot and Xbox is a Decepticon, so we'll leave you to the arguing as we fantasize about robo-anthropomorphising the many other gadgets we have laying about (starting with our Treos).
iPod and Xbox 360 to appear in Transformers?
