MAKE at RoboGames: Highlights

I’ve already shared some images of combat and humanoid robots from RoboGames, but there’s a lot more to see than just that. Below is a slideshow of “the rest”, which there was quite a lot of.

    Its terrible. I was one of the participants and it was extremely unorganized and rules weren’t followed. I did the NATCAR competition and the rule interpretation changed so I was disqualified but really the first two guys should be disqualified so I went from second to forth place. Other events that people worked hard for were also unorganized and the lack of interest was evident.

    People come from all over the world to compete and they get like 20 min of poorly organized competition with little to no spectators per event. The fighting bots is the main event and that has a ton of room to improve. I would never pay 65 dollars as a spectator because its not very exciting and poorly organized. I could go on and on. The show has a ton of potential but they are not delivering.
