If you’re like us, then you have probably seen and maybe even enjoyed Robot Wars. Whilst we like Dara O’briain, it just isnt the same these days without Craig Charles.
Anyway, back to the point, a couple of years back, American firm Megabots, the manufacturers of huge robots, threw down the gauntlet (for an epic super huge robot battle) to their Japanese counterparts (Kuratas) and now we are at a stage where it’s all becoming a reality.
Megabots founders Andrew Stroup, Matt Oehrlein and Gui Cavalcanti created the company to “empower an entire generation of creators to actually build the robots of science fiction for the first time”.
Kuratas are pretty similar in the way they make huge robots to entertain people, as well as being able to muck around with all kinds of cool things.
We genuinely can’t wait to see this battle of the bots. It’s set to take place in August this year at an undisclosed location. Watch this space.
