Since we’re currently in the process of building robots that will inevitably take over the Earth, I reckon it’s about time to check out what we’re dealing with. Enter Robowars; a national showdown of the most tenacious, veracious, and rapacious bots ever let loose in the ring. If anyone is familiar with the wildly popular British show from the 1990's (we totally watched it for the Red Dwarf hosts...) these aren’t your average bots.
Hosted by Robowars and the Queensland Robotics Sports Club Inc., this all-ages event will see spectators witness the boltbath and clanky annihilation as the machines rage against each other over four rounds until the ultimate champion can be decided.
The four different rounds of destruction commence at 10am, 11.30am, 2pm and 3.30pm, so there'll be plenty of chances to watch months of hard work go at each other like a punch-up in a droid bar. Check out Robowars’ website for more details including ways to get involved.
When: Rounds commence at 10am, 11.30am, 2pm, and 3.30pm Sunday 20 May
Where: South Bank Piazza
