(Web Desk) – Inspired by Transformers, the Hollywood thriller about toys and cars that turn into robots, a Turkish company called Letvision has created a real life transformer that converts from a BMW into a giant robot complete with powerful arm movements and an awesom cyborg face.
It took a team of 12 engineers and four supporting technicians from Turkish firm Letvision built the fully-working prototype, called ANTIMON.
A new video of the prototype recorded during its first outdoor test showed the remarkable transformation of an apparently standard BMW into a massive operational robot.
The Letron is being promoted by Letvision as “the first and only of its kind in the world with full performance conversion and excellent technical data.”
While the transformer prototype can’t walk, it can move its head and neck as well as its arms, wrists and kinetic fingers. Engineers at the R&D company say a walking functionality can be added at an extra cost.
The robo-car also comes with a dynamic lighting system, WiFi technology and a smoke machine for added fearsome effect.
The cost of the gadget has not yet been decided.
