Robot Combat League is a reality TV show that now officially exists. The first episode just aired, and if the sight of two giant, bipedal bots controlled via exoskeleton whaling on each other isn’t enough to get you shaking with joy, there’s something wrong with you. The show isn’t quite perfect yet, but can you imagine if this is the beginning of true robot fight-sport? The future!
Here’s an interview with Mark Setrakian that reveals that the bots can walk. without. the. bar. They can move on their own! - albeit slowly. How isn’t that the best thing you’ve heard all day?
