Kickboxing Robots Draw Crowds in Japan

In case you missed the Robo-One competition in Kawasaki, Japan, CNN has a good write-up on it. I also found some great videos on the subject. I’m so intrigued with the critters that are showing up in this competition. Basically, it’s a large group of combatant, bipedal, robotic machines (not all humanoid) that duke it out to be the best of the best. Some have some very fluid Tai Chi moves while others are brutal wrestlers! All of them have an insane ability to get up from a fall.

More after the jump…
