Soundwave, the convertible Transformer in Xiaomi Mi Pad 2, on video
April 13, 2016 at 12:00
Last week we were recreating with a spectacular toy (although we already have a certain age, yes) designed by Hasbro to celebrate Xiaomi's 6 years of experience. Soundwave, this is what the Transformer is called capable of becoming the Mi Pad 2 tablet which has passed the crowdfunding period with overwhelming success and will be marketed in not too long.
Naive of us, this morning we tried to participate in the crowdfunding open to fans of Xiaomi to launch Soundwave to the market and the program no longer admitted contributions. As usual in this successful Chinese company, from the moment the new product is released, it is seen and not seen. The units fly whatever they sell. To some extent it can be considered as the new way in which the old queues materialize at the gates of the Apple Store.

First videos of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 Transformer
As we say, we have not been able to get a copy of Soundwave (although we have in mind to jump for it as more accessible), however, we have stopped to see the first videos of the model and we want to share them with you. It is as we say, a Transformer that in some 30 steps and beating a cmedium complexity Conversion, just adopting the shape of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2.
The head of design of Hasbro tell us that Soundware was in the first generation of Transformers a cassette compact, however, and after this technology is quite obsolete, they have concluded that this name marries better with the Xiaomi tablet, much more adapted to the times and have decided to assign it to his new work.
The transformation of the Mi Pad 2 into Soundwave, in full
In the following video we can see the figure in detail and how the transformation process is carried out. Soundwave has exactly the same measurements as the Xiaomi tablet and a very similar touch in the front area. The backside discovers us at folded robot, although a housing can be covered.
It only remains to be pending to see when the product ends up being marketed and which stores or distribute Spain. Its crowdfunding price was around 23 euros, we hope in the same way that it does not rise much more.
