Robowars is coming to Sydney on 3 and 4 August. Robot combat pits two radio controlled machines against each other in a three-minute fight to the death in a specially constructed arena.
The event is being crowd-funded on Pozible and is already over halfway to its funding target of a very reasonable $2800. Backing the project can get you ‘how to’ videos on how to build a robot and entry into the competition.
This is the first event of this scale in Sydney and it looks like it will be amazing. There’s nothing I can see detailing access to the event, ticketing, etc – I’m hoping we’ll know more about that soon.
Quite aside from everything else I love the $100 backer award on Pozible in which they’ll take any surplus small appliance you have, smash it up with robots and return the bits to you in a bag. Ah, robot mayhem humour.
