Amino-san loves to push the limits in new, creative, and often funny, ways. During today's ROBO-ONE Light competition he took things to totally new heights - literally:
In the end, the judges ruled against him. It turns out that although there is no restriction against ROBO-ONE robots taking to the air, there is a rule that requires them to be able to walk. Amino-san tried to demonstrate his version of air-walking, but failed to convince the judges.
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.
