Well, apparently, now you can.
The amazing thing about the “Transformers” brand is its ability to captivate the imagination of a broad spectrum of nerds—from those who’ve watched every “Transformers” episode at least five times to scientists and engineers who actually know their way around a real-life robot.
Letvision has a fleet of BMWs that they’ve effectively converted into Transformers.
The transformations aren’t as complicated as Optimus Prime’s or even Bumblebee’s (some have suggested they’re more like GoBots than Transformers), but hey, it’s not every day you see an automobile sprout arms and a head. One of those heads even looks like the fearless Autobot leader’s.
The cars, which are working prototypes, are actually giant, remote-controlled toys. Each comes packaged with a controller you can use to move the car around and transform it into a robot. Once in robot mode, internal hydraulics allow it to move parts of its body including its head, arms, wrists, and fingers. It is also capable of speech courtesy of a built-in speaker.
Each Letron also boasts a sound system, an HD LCD, and WiFi technology, among other features. We’re hoping the company will equip future models with pulse cannons and laser axes. Okay, we’re kidding. Pulse cannons and laser axes would be disastrous.
