Macross creator and all around mecha design god, Shoji Kawamori has lent his hand to some amazing anime, but also cool products. Of course I'm going to fawn over the creator of the VF-1J and some of the original Transformers designs, but the man has some serious talent. Did you ever see the Aibo he designed for Sony?

This time around he's lent his brilliant little mind, and talented pencil to Subaru Motors Japan, in helping them promote their new system called, Eyesight Driving Support System, alongside Fuji Heavy Industries. His job, create a mecha that embodies the system, and acts as a badass mascot.

I'm not sure if the driving system will make its way to any cars released in the US, but I would love to see this particular advertising campaign follow along!
