For all the lovers of the Transformers, your obsession with Optimus Prime and Megatron might just land you with one. A Turkish start-up called Letvision has developed a car that turns into a real life transformer within a minute’s time. The robot aka Transformer is named Animatron. According to the company, this is a one-of-a-kind creation in the world, with full performance conversion in one-to-one scale.
Animatron is essentially a modified BMW car, which has the ability to communicate. It can move its head, neck, arm and fingers. The Wi-Fi-enabled transformer has an LED-based dynamic eye structure and variable light spectrum, which allows highly effective visual power. The company took eight months to complete the robot. Letvision now plans to revolutionise the motor industry with its Letron series. If they get reasonable funding, they plan on developing a walking functionality. They are also thinking of expanding by building four other varieties in the Letron series called, Bizmut, Argon, Wolfram and Tantal.
