Combat robots aren't exactly new. The first season of the Comedy Central show Battlebots aired in 2000 and the games had been going strong since 1997.
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, robots are meaner than ever; and the sports fans just as obsessed. Why do they do it? Because for three glorious minutes, the world melts away.
We took the best fight footage we had and put it in this short videoé We'll try to have some outtakes up soon, as I know you love to see robots kicking ass.
