RoboGames This Weekend: Where Robots and Their Human Masters Engage in Sport


Heads up if you’ll be in the San Francisco area this weekend: the RoboGames, the world’s largest robot competition, are in town! From Friday to Sunday you’ll see robots competing in manly sports designed to ween out the weak among us.

Actually, it’s kinda hard to harsh on the games since some of the people involved seem to have a sense of humor about it: “The Make Magazine Firetruck will be there, The Dorkbot PlaySpace and Swap Meet will provide you with an opportunity to get rid of all *your* electronics junk and go home with someone else’s…”

Unfortunately, I recently just torn my favorite knee apart, so I won’t be able to attend. I do, however, look forward to reading about all of the zany action that’s sure to happen.
