Short Bytes: Two hobbyists from Japan have made an awesome transforming robot called J-deite Quarter. This is named so because it’s one-fourth of its final planned size. This Transformer robot can walk in robot form and, when in sports car from, it can drive around on its own.

Kenji Ishida, the developer at Brave Robotics explains his future 2020 plans for Transformer robot on the company website:
The goal of Project J-deite is building of a giant transformable robot of 5 m long. It is the same size as a car. An object of the same size transforms, walks, and runs.
The current speed and specifications of this Transformer robot aren’t enough but we can expect to see an improved and bigger version to arrive soon and turn our real life Transformer fantasy into a reality.
