A robot with human shape that changes into a sports car was unveiled in Japan.
A robot with human shape that changes into a sports car was unveiled in Japan. The change can take place with up to two people inside the car. The car is 3,7 metres tall and weighs 1,6 tonnes.
The J-deite Ride was created by 31-yearold Kenji Ishida, president of Brave Robotics. Ishida was inspired by movies and cartoons that he watched when he was a child. He began to learn robotics when he was 14 and was making plans to build a transformer.
J-deite Ride walks slower than a turtle on his two “feet”. To walk faster, he could slide on two wheels at 30 km/hr. As a car, it can reach the speed of 60 km/hr.
Brave Robotics said that it needs to do more tests before the transformer can be used as a ride in amusement parks. The company plans to launch a five-meter robot in 2020.
