Transformers are real now. The Japanese tech company Brave Robotics and amusement park ride manufacturer Sansei Technologies have come together to unveil J-deite RIDE, a robot humanoid that can grow out of an ordinary sports car. At least, it looks ordinary.
Just like the Transformers from the film, this machine can turn itself into a standing robot with arms and legs. What’s more, this can take place while someone is still sitting in the car (video above).
According to the BBC, the developers of this robot say that this is the first time a machine of this kind has been able to carry people in a functioning vehicle.
