Get ready to rumble with the 2nd annual ROBOTICON Rumble Combat Tournament this Saturday, October 21, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

About Combat Robotics

The ROBOTICON Rumble Combat Robotics Tournament features three weight classes of combat robots: Fairy Weight (150g), Ant Weight (1 lb) and Beetle Weight (3 lbs).  The event runs by SPARC Rules of Competition, where bots compete against one another in their weight class in 3-minute matches, and are awarded points for hits and damage, or knockouts.

Teams can consist of one or more individuals of any age, and are often comprised of friends or family.  Teams will often have multiple robots entered in an event, sometimes in different weight classes. Here are the teams competing in this year’s ROBOTICON Rumble.
