Japanese engineers have unveiled a robot that transforms into a car that can actually carry people on board, in what developers claim is a world-first. The 3.7-metre (12.1-feet)-tall two seater robot'J-deite RIDE' can transform into a sports car in a process that takes about a minute. It can walk at 18.6mph (30 km/h) or run on its four wheels but developers say they've never really tested it outside the factory cargo bay area. The 3.7-metre (12.1-feet)-tall two-seater robot'J-deite RIDE' can transform into a sportscar in a process that takes about a minute As a car, it measures 4 metres (13 feet) long and 1.4 metres (4.6 feet) high.
