Look at this real-life full-size Transformer (is it real?)

by Jacob Kleinman | September 17, 2016

Dreams really do come true, at least if your dream is to own a working Transformer. Turkish company Letvision says it’s developed a robot that can actually transform into a full-sized car.

Each robot features a BMW-inspired design and comes with a remote controller you can use to drive it around or start the transformation. Once the Letron is in robot form it can move its head, arms and fingers thanks to internal hydraulics. It can also talk using a built-in speaker. The company is offering a full robot lineup with options in red, blue, orange, white and gray.

Of course, it’s possible this could just be a clever hoax, but videos of the robot look pretty convincing. Whether the company can turn its prototype into a polished final product remains to be seen. For now, we’re pretty happy just watching this demo on repeat.
