The startup made a video showing off how the sports car turns into a robot, all while showing off some of the team’s amazing engineering skills.
Some critics may feel that the "real-life" Transformer is an act of CGI, but the company hosted a Facebook live event today showing its Transformer in action.
Some of Letrons main features include neck and head movement, arm movements, wrist action, interactivity, adjustable lighting, remote control software and is enriched with the capability to speak. The real-life Transformers also features a power system to manage the energy distribution, fog that can be controlled interactively and a dynamic eye, which allows highly effective visuality. As far as safety, the Transformers have front and rear security sensors.
As of right now, the cars are not drivable in traffic, but will be able to function via remote control. Letrons says it will be possible in the near future due to its electric engine. According to Letrons website, Letrons can be available for sale, but buyers will need to “share their reasons for use, and must meet the criteria of the Letrons team.”
The site also highlights some other models like the “BIZMUT”, “ARGON”, “WOLFRAM” and “TANTAL.” Letrons first model was the “ANTIMON” which took 8 months to build.
