It's time once again for the inimitable RoboGames in San Francisco. This weekend, June 13-15, you can pack the bots in your hovercar, zoom out to the west coast of the United States, and spend 3 action-packed days ringside while robots small, medium, and sumo-sized beat the crap out of each other with saws, fire, and sheer kinetic force. There is nothing like seeing a 300-pound robot smack into the plexiglass inches from your face. Oh, and also there are robots who dance, play soccer, and do non-violent things too. Plus, art. RoboGames is basically a DiY robot extravaganza. Want to see what you're missing? Video below.
I was there when that happened. It was AWESOME.
Seriously, don't miss the RoboGames.
