Turkish company Letvision has created the real-world equivalent of Transformers — minus the sentience.
Called Letrons, these remote-controlled cars transform from a BMW into a functioning robot, according to the company's official website
In its robot form, Letrons can rotate their heads 120 degrees and perform "speech and movement abilities in real time" thanks to camera integration. The Letrons are also able to move their arms, wrists, and individual fingers, but not the legs — Letvision notes that functionality could be added if "reasonable funding is provided for a new research and development project," though.
As an automobile, Letrons offer a functional steering wheel as well as front and rear security sensors. However, each car's remote control functionality prohibits it from being driven in traffic. As Letvision notes, that may change in the near future since the product already includes an electric engine.
There are currently four different models of the robot car: Bizmut (blue/red, much like Optimus Prime), Argon (white/blue), W0lfram (orange/grey), and Tantal (grey/black), with more models coming "in the near future."
While Letrons are for sale, don't expect to purchase one as a collector's item. Letvision will only sell to a buyer whose "project and their reasons for use" meet the company's undefined criteria.
