J-deite RIDE is a working, transforming robot that can change between a humanoid form and a functional car. Basically, it's the closest thing you'll find to a functional, real-life Transformer anywhere this side of Cybertron.

The 3.7-metres (12 feet) tall blue and white robot can carry two passengers in car form

It takes the J-deite RIDE a whole minute to change from a robot into a car (or vice versa), and if you think that's a little on the slow side, we haven't even touched on its walking speed.On wheels, J-deite RIDE's engineers say it has a 'theoretical' driving speed of 60 kilometres per hour (37 miles per hour), and the same wheels enable the robot to roll along at half that speed.

The autobot is powered by a lithium battery and has 49 folding joints.It can also be controlled remotely or from within the driver cockpit.

During the transformation the car seats and hood lift up and the robot's head appears, writes Asahi.

Two people, including a driver, can fit into the 'cockpit' but the machine can also be controlled wirelessly.

The first prototype, which weighed 77lbs (35kg), was unveiled at the annual Digital Content Expo in Tokyo in October 2014.

It is powered by 'V-Sido OS' software designed by creator Wataru Yoshizaki to allow anyone to control humanoid robots.

The J-deite RIDE robot is the brainchild of Kenji Ishida, CEO of Brave Robotics and a fan of anime movies featuring robots that could transform or combine with each other.
