๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿค–vs๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿค–: MegaBots vs Suidobashi Robot Duel to Stream Live on @Twitch Oct 17th 7PM PT | @MegaBots

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.
