A Turkish Company Is Making ‘Transformers’ Out Of BMW Cars
Most of you would have watched the ‘Transformers’ movie released in 2007 and its subsequent sequels. The one thing that stood out in the Transformers was the ability of everyday vehicles to transform them into super robots. The movie is based on the toy series from Hasbro with the same name.
The movie is based on the toy series from Hasbro with the same name. The movie’s central plot revolves around Shia LaBeouf as Sam Witwicky, a teenager who gets caught up in a war between the heroic Autobots and the villainous Decepticons, two factions of alien robots who can disguise themselves by transforming into everyday machinery, primarily vehicles. The Autobots intend to use the AllSpark, the object that created their robotic race, in an attempt to rebuild Cybertron and end the war while the Decepticons desire control of the AllSpark with the intention of using it to build an army by giving life to the machines of Earth
Making ‘Transformers’ toys is one thing but bringing ‘Transformers’ into real life in the real world is an impossible challenge. A Turkish tech firm, Letvision is trying just that. The Letvision ‘Transformers’ are based on BMW cars which obviously can’t battle with Decepticons, but they can turn their heads from side to side and move their arms and fingers and, shoot smoke from between their legs.
Letvision has tried their ‘Transformer’ stuff on a 2013 BMW and the result is pretty amazing :
Letvision calls their Transformers, “Letrons” and it has made four of those. While Letvision’s Letron’s are awesome as robots you can only “drive” them remotely because Letvision stuffed the seating spaces with the hydraulics and electronics needed for the conversion.
If you are a ‘Transformers’ fan and would like to own a Letvision Letron, you will be interviewed by the company as it only work with potential buyers whose “project and reason to use” match up with their own unspecified criteria.
