For all 'Transformers' movie lovers, Japanese engineers have brought transformers to life by creating a robot that can turn itself into a functional car that actually carries people on board.

J-deite RIDE, as it has been named, is a transforming robot that changes itself between a humanoid form and a functional car. The robot was revealed previous week in Japan and is over 12ft tall when in its humanoid form, until it turns itself into a two-seater sports car in a minute.

The robot contains the ability to walk at a speed of 100 meters per hour and while on its four wheels, it can drive at a speed of 60 kilometers per hour. However, the developers informed that they have never tested it outside the factory cargo bay area.

The project, which has been in development since 2014, is a joint venture between three individual robotics and machinery companies, Asratec, Sansei Technologies, and Brave Robotics. Finally after four years hard work the prototype is all set to be showed off at Japanese exhibitions, reported Science Alert.

The motivation to create such a robot was derived from the childhood transformer heroes in anime movies, as per the CEO of Brave Robotics, Kenji Ishida.

According to Telegraph, Ishida admitted that this robot is not cheap but, is an attempt to inspire others and widen the human imagination. Developers also claimed that they will soon start utilizing the technology in entertainment industry including in amusement parks and street parades.
