On Memorial Day, Monday evening, the Science Channel has some combat goodness from our new robot overlords. Mythbuster’s Grant Imahara will be hosting Killer Robots: RoboGames 2011, for the first television coverage of the International RoboGames from San Francisco. Previously known as RobOlympics, this competition has been going on for a decade and gets better every year. The actual gathering took place over three days in April with 50 separate events, so I am expecting to see the very best instances of mechanical mayhem in the 45 minutes they edited it down to. If you want to get in on the fun yourself, the next one is the Combots Cup, a combat only event on Oct 28-30th, 2011; start building your bot now.
