Japanese Real-Life Transformer
The product of a cooperative partnership between Brave Robotics, Asratec, and Takara Tomy, it’s not quite the massive robots that appeared in the Transformers movies. Instead, it’s about a fourth of the size, which they plan to scale in increments before creating a full-size Transformers that you can drive to work, then transform in the parking lot to serve as your bodyguard.
In robot mode, J-deite Quarter stands 4.3 feet tall, in which form it can walk at a pace of a little over half a mile per hour and it can transform into an actual car in just 30 seconds, complete with a working engine and drivetrain that will allow it to be driven on the road. That is, if you can fit inside the undersized cabin ( No you cannot). In car mode, it can go at speeds of up to 6.2 mph. This is meant as an early prototype that’s why it is so slow but hey give it sometime, 8.2 feet version and a full-scale 16.4 feet version scheduled to follow.
Full-size version of J-deite Quarter isn’t scheduled to be finished until 2020.
