The fun of a physical toy is touching and manipulating it. However, robot manufacturer Robosen is betting that there's a market for people who want a Transformer, and want it to transform without having to touch the thing.
I suppose it's not terribly different from an RC car, where the "fun" lies in manipulating it without touching it. I just didn't expect to see it taken to these lengths. If the trend progresses, perhaps it won't be long until we see transforming drones.
