Live in Orlando? A transforming robot prototype to appear at IAPPA Attractions Expo '16


Spread your wings and transform

If you happen to live in Florida, the J-deite RIDE's prototype, a car that can change into a robot, at Orlando's IAAPA Attractions Expo '16 on Nov. 14. The cool thing about this creation is that folks can get inside of it. 

Another neat thing about this machine is that Kunio Okawara (Brave Express Might Gaine and King of Braves GaoGaiGar's Mechanical Designs) handled its mechanical designs. Thanks to this decision, the robot looks like a real Transformers or Brave Saga unit.

Upon completion, the J-deite RIDE will stand at 13 feet, and it should be complete in the middle of next year. For now, it's purpose is to be used for business promotions, events and amusement parks. In other words, we won't get to drive one on the road, which is a bit of a good thing since it wouldn't be pretty to see people getting into robot battles during rush hour.

Thanks to the robot's creators, Asratec, Sansei Technologies and BRAVE ROBOTICS, banded together to form an LLP (limited liability partnership) on Nov. 11, their goal of releasing the machine soon should become a reality.

While I won't get to go to the event, I'm hoping that videos of the prototype will surface online soon. To those who live in Florida, are any of you planning to go see this transforming robot prototype in action?
