It seems NASA wanted to make a real-life transformer and they have somehow sort of managed to do just that. Meet the Superbot, a robot that is made out of 100 modules that are dropped separately from a plane then scramble together and rejoin to create a rover.

It can transform again, however, by sprouting legs for climbing a sand dune. Once on top of the sand dune, it can form a greenhouse for growing seeds. Sounds elaborate, but potentially pretty cool. Good going, NASA!
