In what will surely come as splendid news to fans of the 'Transformers' cartoon series, a group of Japanese scientists and engineers have managed to go ahead and invent a real-life transformer car that is capable of converting itself from a four-wheeler vehicle to a giant robot that a human operator can actually ride in and control.
Dubbed the 'J-deite RIDE,' this transformer car was crafted by Brave Robotics as part of a multidisciplinary collaboration that also involved robotics software experts Asratec, noted designer Kunio Okawawara and manufacturing firm Sansei Technologies.
This masterpiece of robotic engineering currently only exists as a single unit which can be rented for public events, but Sansei Technologies hopes to eventually build more models for use in amusement parks, in what will surely be an unforgettable experience.
