Sometimes I look like a donut,
other times I look like a truck.
I have many shapes so you know,
but i am no shadow.

Converting from one thing to another is my technique,
but it is the very same thing that I seek.
Now you may search your garage,
though it won't be easy with my camouflage.

Are you a

Transformer? (Thanks to @smriti for the idea - R.I.D = Robots In Disguise)

Sometimes I look like a donut

Electrical transformers are often toroidal

Sometimes I look like a truck

Optimus Prime! He's a "Transformer" that looks like a truck.

I have many shapes so you know,

Both the robotic and electrical voltahe step up/down transformers come in many different forms

but i am no shadow.

No idea for this one.

Converting from one thing to another is my technique,

The robotic transformer changes shapes, and the electrical transformer changes voltage levels

but it is the very same thing that I seek.

The electrical form changes high voltage to low voltage or vice versa (it stays voltage). The robots also remain robots, just in a different shape.

Now you may search your garage, though it won't be easy with my camouflage.

Robotic transformers are meant to blend in and look like normal vehicles.

  • $\begingroup$ nicely done! though by converting i am hoping for an answer related to 'energy' $\endgroup$ – Alex Aug 12 '16 at 14:28

Is it

playing dough

Sometimes I look like a donut,
other times I look like a truck.
I have many shapes so you know,

It can be molded in those shapes

but i am no shadow.

Obviously

Converting from one thing to another is my technique,
but it is the very same thing that I seek.

It can molded again and again from one thing to another

Now you may search your garage,
though it won't be easy with my camouflage.

This is where I am stuck

  • $\begingroup$ I was searching for full forms of RID, first one I got is 'Robots In Disguise', and I think this also fits the answer :P $\endgroup$ – smriti Aug 12 '16 at 4:26
