Transformers-style robot turns into a car in 60 seconds

It can drive or walk with passengers inside.

Japanese engineers unveiled the J-deite RIDE, which can transform from a robot into a two-seater sports car.


Rusty Power

Rusty Power

It sounds like the name of a male dancer, but it’s really the negative charge clamp for my car’s battery. Tricks of the ambient light make the greenish areas look like they’re radioactive and glowing, and the forward bolt look three-dimensional.

’51 Studebaker Avon Spicy Aftershave bottle

Vintage dark blue glass cologne bottle.  I’m not sure how old it is, but it’s old.

I thought this was going to be the worst of the photos I took of it, with the flash being so close, but it turns out to be the best.  The depth of field was enhanced so that the background looks like it’s radiating from a distant point.  The lighting added “clouds” to the fuzzy backdrop, and made it look like grass in the foreground.
