We mentioned in a previous post that after three days of intense robot battles, the competitors here in Japan like to relax with a nice meal, lots of beer, some sake, and several hours of additional robot rumble competitions. The March Hare, who runs the popular Robot-Fan website here in Japan, just posted a great video (see link below) showing one of the three robot rumbles staged after the Robo-Fight 3 competition here last Friday night.
This particular rumble involved 22 robots including some of the most well known competitors like Yokozuna Great, King Kizer, Asso Di Fiori, Yogo Custom, and others.
The battlefield was roughly the size of a couple of desktops - barely big enough for all the robots to stand at the beginning. Each of the three rumbles lasted about 5 minutes, and once the number of robots left standing dropped below about 7, the battlefield size was cut in half.
You can hear our voice from time to time in the video background, but the camera was totally focused on the robot action, as it should be.
