The movie Bumblebee tells the story of a transforming robot that shape shifts into a 1957 yellow Volkswagen Beetle. This Aquanaut Transformer is real and it shape shifts between a submarine and a humanoid robot. See photos 1 and 3. Its submarine shape allows it to quickly move through the water to get where it needs to be. Once there, it shape shifts into a very powerful robot capable of performing all kinds of underwater construction tasks. Its control system lets it move and work under human control for parts of its mission and under AI autonomous control for other parts of the mission. The full story is amazing.
