Have you ever watched Battlebots
, Robot Wars
, or other robot fighting shows and thought, "I can do that."? We were thinking the same thing, so we've decided to make our own robot fighting competition right here in Columbia.
The catch, however, is that all the bots in our competition must be built using cardboard. Primarily cardboard, in fact. This is to help keep costs low and the destruction high, and because it sounded like fun.
The fights will be held Saturday, September 19th
at the Columbia Gadget Works hackerspace. You can find links to the rules and to a list of currently registered bots below. If you think you're ready, you can sign up your own bot and get building.
