The Transformer project, or TX, from DARPA has been moving forward in its development stages pretty steadily.The Transformer project is not about everyday vehicles changing into giant sentient robots with lasers, this is about a Humvee being able to travel on land and air. So basically, it’s the flying car that many have dreamed about, but with rockets or chain guns.

The Transformer project has a lot of different scenarios for usage. One of the more unique ones, though, is the ability for the Humvee to work as a medical transport, with the ability to fly out of a dangerous situation at the drop of a hat. That means wounded soldiers on the ground, as long as they are near the Transformer, won’t have to wait for an incoming helicopter to evacuate.

A few more details about the driving and flying vehicle have emerged as well. For example, the Transformer will be able to move at a speed of about 65 mph, while it’s driving around. However, while it’s in the air, it will be able to reach speeds of 150 mph. The design calls for lightweight anti-blast armor, as well as ballistic-proof windows installed throughout. And, as you can imagine, the Transformer will indeed be outfitted with heavy weapons for defense, as well as offensive maneuvers.

But, the real motivator for the Transformer to take shape, and actually find its way to the battlefield, is the supposed cost. According to DARPA, the Transformer will only cost around $203,000 to construct.
