RoboGames, World’s Largest Open Robot Competition, San Francisco June 15 – 17

http://robogames.net/index.php

RoboGames is the world’s largest open robot competition. The best minds from around the world are invited  to compete in over 70 different events. Combat robots, walking humanoids, soccer bots, sumo bots, and even androids that do kung-fu will compete and be demonstrated. Some robots are autonomous and some are remote controlled.

No matter what your favorite robot sport is, the best bots in the world will be in San Francisco this June. Past events have seen the stands filled with people watching 340 pound robots shoot flame and smash into each other; Androids cart-wheeling down the soccer field; and even Canadians showing off hockey-playing robots.

This year RoboGames hosts the Federation of International Robot-soccer Association’s annual Robot World Cup. Soccer playing robots from around the world will compete in seven different classes—from bots as small as a quarter to androids that are almost 3 feet tall.
