MegaBots wants to crowdfund for World’s First Giant Robot Tournament 2018


A team of fans makes the robot concept Eagle Prime Two years before (in 2015), and what did you do to with a 15 feet tall metal beast: Challenge its Japanese equivalent, Kuratas, to a duel. Years later, the creations finally duked it out in an incredible brawl that appeared that there was absolutely nothing. in a move that broke all our hearts, after the team Eagle Prime wants to build it right…by hosting a massive robot tournament at the end of 2018. they simply have to raise $950,000 on Kickstarter to put it on.

It’s not too crazy, provided that the team crowdfunded over $550,000 years ago for the Eagle Prime vs. Kuratas duel. should the new funding goal be met, Eagle Prime can join 3 other bots (seven, if stretch goals are met) to fight for glory in an unannounced 20,000-seat San Francisco location. 2 Chinese groups (and their bots) are in talks to enter, with extra interest from teams in the U.S., Canada, Japan and South Korea, in keeping with MegaBots’ press release.

MegaBots is portraying the tournament as a redemption tour of types that goes beyond a mea culpa for the match’s deception. “We want to say that it’s always been our intention to create a live, unscripted sport, and this is the culmination of that drive,” MegaBots cofounder and chief executive officer GUI Cavalcanti told.

The competitions are a critical step in building their robot fight sport a reality, MegaBots says in its press material. to it end, if the crowdfunding campaign makes stretch goals, the company can open source one of their older robot designs to facilitate other teams’ analysis efforts.

MegaBots stated that it’ll most likely fold if this crowdfunding goal is not met. If you would like a tournament of robots fighting each other — and who does not — then the Kickstarter can be found their website
