According to AmiAmi, the concept car can transform its shape and should be able to do what a full-sized automobile can’t. The vehicle is being called as a drivable smartphone or portable information terminal. The ultra-compact mobility car is being developed by Tokyo’s Four Link Systems and will come with a mounted camera for panoramic view and internet connection. The artist said that when the transformer car will hit the market, he’d like to add the Federation or Zeon logo. The company hopes that Ex Machina will soon receive governmental approval and be available for sale in the next two years.
