Check out this awesome bright red double-decker bus that does push-ups with a pair of giant robot arms!

Czech artist David Černý purchased the traditional 1957 London bus in the Netherlands and modified it by attaching two huge muscular arms powered by an electrical engine and lots of wiring and suspension tools that push the vehicle up and down. The exercizes are accompanied by the recording of sounds evoking intense physical exertion.

Entitled London Boosted, this buff robot bus will be parked outside the Czech Olympic headquarters in London’s Islington neighbourhood for the duration of the 2012 Olympic Games.

Visit The Presurfer to watch video of the bus in action.
