We will be at the Chicago Northside Mini Maker Faire, Saturday, May 2, 2015. This will be our third time attending, and we’re pumped to show off all that we’ve been up to in the last year. We love inspiring people young and old to pursue an interest in robotics. It’s also pretty sweet that we were featured in a Meet the Maker post on front page of the Mini Maker Faire website. We hope to see you there!

Wait, did you say “Flamethrower”?

Wait, did you say “Flamethrower”? – The Robogames Combat Robots

Our friends over at Geeks are Sexy posted up a great video which examines the builders and their robots in modern Combat Robotics. Footage was taken at last year’s Maker Faire in Austin Texas. It showcases some of the fight highlights as well as talking a bit of shop with some of the builders. This raises our excitement for the upcoming Robogames 2009, and we hope to see you there!

What’s interesting, however, is how 11 years of robot evolution have affected the sport. Back in 2002, the spinners ruled the day. But today’s robots are meaner than ever; and the sport’s fans just as obsessed. Why do they do it? Because for three glorious minutes, the world melts away.
