FansNerds of the Robot Fighting League—the one that was on Comedy Central—are proud of their metal creations. But in the end, they're just Roombas with hammers and saws attached.
Our tech-inclined friends over in Japan, however, have taken it to the next step. We've never lost money by overestimating their love of humanoid robots, but this just blew our minds. The Japanese have an actual Ultimate Fighting Robots league where the contestants actually look like robots should.
Unfortunately, the bots are only about a foot tall, but this is a step in the right direction. Kudos, Japan. You're working hard to bring the inevitable Human-Robot Wars upon us that much quicker.
