Korean Robot Games Festival!

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

I was lucky enough to attend the 2010 Korean Robot Games Festival, and let me tell you; it was an absolute blast! I’ve never before seen so many humanoid robots under one roof, and the competition there was really fierce. Builders from all over S. Korea, Japan, and a number of visitors from across the globe showed up for the Humanoid Kung-Fu tournament held there. Everything from smaller Bioloid bots to the massive Red Devil (which stood close to 3 feet tall and weighed well over 20lbs!) duked it out!

Here is a quick video that highlights some of the cool stuff to be seen there, be sure to check out our photo gallery as well!

Korean Robot Games Festival 2009

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009

Our friends across the Big Pond at Robosavvy were lucky enough to visit the Korean Robot Festival this year. They took tons of pictures and shot a lot of video showcasing some of the world’s top humanoid competition robots! From slightly modified Robonova and Bioloid bots, to fully custom towering humanoids, all shapes and sizes showed up to compete. Pedro from Robosavvy did an amazing job of documenting his time there in this forum thread, anyone interested in humanoid robots will be delighted to check it out.

The thread linked above has the full details, but this video stood out to me as awesome; it’s a custom built humanoid using AX-12 servos. Check out how quick and agile it is!
