RoboGames is the world's largest open robot competition (even the Guinness Book of World Records says so!) We invite the best minds from around the world to compete in over 70 different events. Combat robots, walking humanoids, soccer bots, sumo bots, and even androids that do kung-fu. Some robots are autonomous, some are remote controlled - but they're all cool!
This is the only event in the world that both Geeks and Jocks agree on:
The Best Ten North American Geek Fests - Wired Magazine
SportCenter's Top Ten - ESPN SportsCenter
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 we also host the Federation of International Robot-soccer Association 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.
The fighting robot stars of TV will be back as well with the best ComBots in the world. The best builders from the US, the UK, Canada, Brazil, Australia, and Korea will battle it out in 11 different fighting weight classes. To see the action from past years, check out our photo page. The results for 2006 are also available, but the best way to discover RoboGames isn't what we say - read any of the press reports about the show!
If you saw the exciting real-time humanoid soccer matches last year, now you can own your own walking robot! RoboGames now sells the exciting walking robots featured in the Robot Soccer tournament! You can own your very own walking robot.
