Real-Life Transformer Can Transform From 2-Passenger Drivable Car To Walking 12-Foot Tall Humanoid

April 26, 2018

FULL DISCLOSURE: It takes a minute and a half to transform (the gif is playing at 4X real time), has an apparent top driving speed of very slow, and a top walking speed of even slower. Besides that though the future is practically here.

These are a bunch of video demonstrations (car to humanoid transformation, humanoid to car transformation, driving test, walking test) of the J-deite RIDE, a real-life two passenger Transformer developed by BRAVE ROBOTICS, Asratec Corp, and Sansei Technologies. While definitely a step in the right direction, it's probably not the Transformer you want to be inside when the Decepticons attack unless you're really into dying. But, like I said before, it's a step in the right direction. Ramp up its speed by 10X and add some laser cannons and buzz saws and we'll actually have a Transformer worth driving through an enemy's house. Right now we only have a Ford Explorer I covered in aluminum foil and dryer vent hoses though, so we'll have to make do. Bring an axe or shovel or something to swing out the window. Oh -- and practice your best robot voice, this has to be believable.

Keep going for all the videos.

Thanks to JM and K Diddie, who can't imagine Optimus Prime is particularly proud of this Autobot, which might explain why we've never heard about it until now.

    They should have played the autobot transforming sound at 80x slower speed.

    I'm just confused as to why it HAS to be humanoid, head and all. When the face flipped up to cover the windshield it looked super flimsy. I mean if I were to be sitting inside this thing and actually riding into battle I would opt for some level of cage or deflectors and not a ripoff Gundam face

    Steps into device that moves hundreds of pounds of metal
    wonders how many body parts will be removed during operation

    Oh SO close I can taste it. Soon we will all be running around in mech cars. Just imagine, instead of the cop pulling you over and walking to your window he'll just step on your car with his!

    It’s like combining two cool things to make one crappy one.

    I will be the FIRST to say that I really wanted to see more of the walking....what do you think about that Eric? HA!!

  • TheQiwiMan

    Careful, he’s killed for much less than that.
