Tune in here tomorrow 10/17/2017 at 7PM PT/10PM ET to watch an epic robot duel between America’s MegaBots and Japan’s Suidobashi!
Two years ago, U.S. robotics company MegaBots challenged its Japanese rival, Suidobashi Heavy Industries, to a duel between their giant robots. Suidobashi had accepted but added a condition of its own: melee combat must be a part of the fight.
To make sure its robot was up to the task for hand-to-hand combat, MegaBots started a Kickstarter to upgrade its Mk.II robot, which was built mostly for long-range paintball combat. It raised about $554,600 in crowdfunding from nearly 8,000 backers.
In August the company officially introduced the robot that would take part in the fight.
