1st RT Battle Cup: Bigger isn't always better (Video)
Watching the humanoid battles at RoboGames 2008 yesterday we noticed how impressive the larger, higher torque designs are for the crowd. The Robit team from Korea, with their 4+ kg bots, along with Zog and Oro from Farrell Robotics, put on a great, and very realistic show.
With that in mind, we wanted to remind everyone that it isn't just power. Speed, technique, and especially strategy, play a huge part in determining who wins. Take, for example, the RT Corp exhibition match (April, 2008), between Seega and Shiranuhi.
Although Shiranuhi is a well known ROBO-ONE champion, created and piloted by Dr. GIY, and totally out-powered/out-weighed the smaller Seega, the results showed how technique, strategy, and the will to win can succeed in the end.
