RoboGames 2012: Mech Wars Hardcore Weapons of Mass Destruction (Video)

120422 robot mech wars shibata 1

Mech Wars HardCore is the only humanoid and multi-legged robot event at RoboGames where the builders are allowed to equip their robots with weapons of mass destruction, including deadly arms like rockets, flame throwers, and other life threatening tools.

This year three builders showed up, and had the guts to actually put their robots in the cage. One from the US, one from Japan, and one from Mexico. It didn't take long to see how the battle would evolve.

Kickstarter Project: RoboGames 2012 documentary

RoboGames has a new Kickstarter project to create a documentary video covering all the top events and competitors at RoboGames 2012. It's a fantastic way to enjoy all the bot on bot action if you can't get to San Mateo to experience it in person. And, even if you are present and accounted for, there is way too much going on for you to absorb and appreciate it all.

Helping to fund the documentary, and getting a copy of the DVD in return, is an excellent way to support the sport and continue to enjoy RoboGames 2012 with all your friends for years to come. It would also make a great birthday, special occasion, or Christmas gift for the robot geek in your life.

GAROO Retains ROBO-ONE Championship in the Final Match (Video)

120325 ROBO ONE 1

There have been many ROBO-ONE Champions since the well-known humanoid robot competition first started 10 years ago, but I'm sure that back in 2002 no one ever imagined that the same builder would win the title twice in a row, and that the competitor that did would be a woman.

That's exactly what happened this afternoon when GAROO, the reigning ROBO-ONE 19 champion, went head to head in the ring against Gargoyle Mini for the ROBO-ONE 20 championship, a huge trophy, and a cash prize worth approximately $12,000.

Mech Warfare Hardcore Robot Battle Challenge Match Heats Up! (Video)

che mech warfare robot

One thing I really enjoy about robot competitions like RoboGames and Mech Warfare is the friendliness and openness of the participants. Even when they are trying their best to defeat, and potentially demolish, each other's robots, they still manage to keep it polite and friendly.

Take for example, the Shibata - Che Edoga Mech Warfare Hardcore rivalry...
