Czech artist David Cerny is transforming a London bus into an amazing robotic sculpture.

The bus, which Cerny hopes could become an unofficial mascot of the London 2012 Olympic Games, does push-ups with the help of an engine powering a pair of robotic arms, and the motion is accompanied by a recording of sounds evoking tough physical effort.

It will be parked outside the Czech Olympic headquarters in London during the Olympics.
