Turkish Company Builds A Real Life Transformer Out Of A BMWScreen Shot 2016-09-22 at 6.05.30 PM
A Turkish company managed to create a real-life transformer out of a BMW 3 series coupe, including the ability for it to speak
The company, Letvision, managed to take the car and transform it into a massive robot where the side panels come out and the chassis lifts up its legs. When the car is standing completely upright, a head pops out of the front of the car and gives off the appearance of a real Transformer. The head can turn 120 degrees.
The car/transformer is currently only a large toy because at that stage, it is remote-controlled.
It has an HD LCD, WiFi technology, a sound system, moving arms and lights as well as a reactive camera.
The project for the transformer was titled “Letrons” and the model of the car was named “Antimon.” It took the company four technicians, twelve engineers and 8 months to complete the project.
The four models available are Bizmut, Argon, Wolfram, and Tanta.
The car can be bought but only if the company can vet the buyer and see if they are purchasing it for the right reasons. The car is also not ready to be driven in traffic just yet and is not able to walk. These are features they hope to create in the future with additional funding.
