The Latest in Demolition Derby Technology

“MegaBots is finally going to take on Japan in the world’s first giant robot duel”

As per the article: “MegaBots’ 12-ton, 16-foot robot, which it’s very patriotically calling ‘Eagle Prime,’ has shipped to the as-of-yet undisclosed duel location. The new robot can move quicker and punch faster than the original robot MegaBots built. It has seats for a pilot and a gunner, and features a cannon arm for shooting massive paintballs, and a giant claw for grappling opponents. MegaBots said it’s also built other weapons that can be swapped onto the robot, including a chainsaw and a very large drill.”

Having grown up on robot sci-fi, and worked with highly automated systems, these things are not robots to me. But, they are a new twist on Demolition Derby entertainment.
