Real-life Transformer: The Japanese robot that becomes a car

Inspired by the children's TV show Transformers, engineers have developed a robot that becomes a car.

Japanese firm Brave Robotics and amusement park ride manufacturer Sansei Technologies worked together on the development.

The designers say it's the first time a machine of this kind has been able to carry people in a functioning vehicle.
