Robots with Friggin Laser Beams on their Heads!

Monday, August 31st, 2009

Giving robots weaponry seems to be a recurring theme with humanity’s technological progression in robotics. Not that there is anything wrong with that; it’s not like something could ever go wrong in the future. Right?

In America, we’ve got Mech Warfare which implements archaic Airsoft guns and rockets. Japan however, has decided to step it up a notch and have equipped their robots with lasers. Building exploding, blindness causing, movie theater annoying lasers of destruction. To add insult to injury, they’ve even adding awesome PEW PEW PEW noises to their lasers! Why must you taunt us Japan, why?!? Not only do you make cooler robots, but now you’re giving them lasers. Totally not fair. The Robot BLASER Battles are definitely awesome though, check out their 2nd annual competition video below:
