Whatever happened to Robot Wars? That show was huge for a while but now seems to have disappeared into the ether. It was probably canceled because the robots were always so rubbish.
This video shows footage from the Robo-One championships in Tokyo last year. This category sees two-legged robots battling for the crown of ‘Best Robot Fighter’. It’s like watching Muhammad Ali at the height of his powers.
The Japanese are obsessed with robotics, which is why the technology is evolving there much faster than anywhere else in the world. Although, I’m not too sure whether boxing robots are really going to change the world.
As robots become more advanced, it makes me worry about The Matrix coming true. But, I don’t think we yet have to worry because on this evidence, one little push can knock them over. In fact, I could probably blow a robot… over. Ooer.
