RoboGames 2008 going on as we speak

Unless you’re Michael Bay can you ever go wrong with combat robots? Geeks come up with some awesome stuff.

Source and more info. found at RoboGames (formerly ROBOlympics).

RoboGames is the world’s largest open robot competition (even the Guinness Book of World Records says so!) We invite the best minds from around the world to compete in over 70 different events. Combat robots, walking humanoids, soccer bots, sumo bots, and even androids that do kung-fu. Some robots are autonomous, some are remote controlled – but they’re all cool! As an open event, anyone can compete – this means you.

This is the only event in the world that both Geeks and Jocks agree on:

The Best Ten North American Geek FestsWired Magazine
SportCenter’s Top Ten – ESPN SportsCenter

Watch our Videos to see how cool RoboGames is! No matter what your favorite robot sport is, the best bots in the world come to San Francisco every June. The stands are filled with people watching 340 pound robots shoot flames and smash into each other, androids cart-wheeling down the soccer field, and even Canadians with hockey playing robots.

Watch this video shot at the 2006 RoboGames to get a good idea of how crazy this competition is.
