We're One Step Closer To Having A Real Transformer

Transformers! They're the stuff of childhood dreams. And thanks to some enterprising folks in Japan, we're one step closer to having them be a reality.

You're looking at J-deite Quarter, a 1.3m-tall transforming robot made by Brave Robotics, Tomy and Asratec. It's step one in a three-step goal of creating a 5m tall, life-sized and transforming robot by 2020. They're slated to have the intermediary robot, J-deite half, done by 2016.

For more info and to look at this little guy in full, check out the creator's site.

    This is the coolest thing ever.

    Although not as cool as that guy's sunglasses.

    While that's kinda cool.. What's the actual plan for these? Seems kind of an expensive idea for a novelty..

    They didn't show any video of it driving....
