Someone made a working Transformer robot, yes really

Your dreams of a car that turn into an enormous alien robot (don’t deny it) have taken a step closer to become a reality.

Brave Robotics, Asratec Corp and original Transformer designers Tomy have collaborated to build a small-scale, fully-functioning Transformer that starts as a car and becomes a walking, humanoid robot.

And, despite its small size, its Japanese creators insist it is not a toy – and bigger, better models are in the pipeline.

‘The goal of Project J-deite is the building of a giant transformable robot 5m long. It is the same size as a car. An object of the same size transforms, walks, and runs,’ said Kenji Ishida of Brave Robotics.

The J-deite Quarter, which is one-fourth of its planned size, is roughly 5ft tall in its robot form and weighs 77lbs.

In its car form, it can drive at up to 6mph, though the developers have not yet made clear if the finished, full-size product will be able to accommodate a driver.

They’re also not planning to make it commercially available. But there’s always Kickstarter…
