Robots fighting is an uneasy thought in retrospect. Rest assured, today we’re talking mini-robots, they are a lot cuter than lethal. In the Robo One tournament dozens of tiny fighting robots knuckle up for the championship trophy.
The tournament was begun in 2002 and is put on by Robot Dreams. The competition is held twice a year, when robot winners are awarded $12,000 and a trophy that is much larger than the robots themsleves. The next tournament takes place next month, February 15-16 2014.
