At The Faire - Robot Extreme

Posted on 15 Sep 2015

Robot Extreme

Robot combat is one of the most popular events of any Maker Faire, and we are happy to announce that José Guilherme Ferreira will be bringing it to this year’s event.

Contestants have 3 minutes to immobilize their opponent according to the rules - either by making it get stuck in the arena or damaging it so that it is unable to fight.

The first combat of this kind was held at Design 2.007, which is a yearly event held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and its success gave rise to the first robot competition organized by the Foundation For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) in 1992.

You can learn more about this project on its site and Facebook page.
