Real-life Transformers now exist as robot that can transform into a car launches

Transformers are finally a reality as a genius Japanese company has made an actual robot that transforms into a car – and vice versa.

A group of engineers at firm Brave Robotics unveiled the new creation, named J-deite RIDE, which is reminiscent of Bumblebee and co.

Take a look at footage of it in action below:

OK, so it doesn’t exactly transform at the speed of the robots in the Transformers series – but what Michael Bay movie is grounded in reality, let’s be honest?

Brave Robotics worked with amusement park ride manufacturer Sansei Technologies. They aim to get J-deite used in theme parks.

Well, we certainly want to go to that theme park.

Amazingly, they’re still making Transformers movies with the fifth one, The Last Knight, released just last year. However, a sixth outing looks in doubt.

There’s also a spinoff Bumblebee movie coming out later this year starring Hailee Steinfeld and John Cena, set 20 years before the first movie in the series.

While the movie series is either terrible or a bit of harmless fun depending on your outlook, one person who really isn’t a fan is original star Shia LaBoeuf, who called them “irrelevant”.

“My hang-up with those films was that they felt irrelevant,” he said. “They felt dated as f**k. You come up on these stories about Easy Rider and Raging Bull and De Niro and Scorsese and Hopper, and you find value in what they do.

“Meanwhile, you’re chasing energon crystals. It’s very hard to keep doing what you’re doing when you feel like it’s the antithesis of your purpose on this planet.”
