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
Watch our Videos to see how cool RoboGames is! No matter what your favorite robot sport is, the best bots in the world come to San Francisco every June. The stands are filled with people watching 340 pound robots shoot flames and smash into each other, androids cart-wheeling down the soccer field, and even Canadians with hockey playing robots.
The best ComBot builders from the US, the UK, Canada, Brazil, Australia, and Korea battled it out in 11 different fighting weight classes. To see the action, check out our photo page. The results for 2007 are available, as are the academic research papers. But the best way to discover RoboGames isn't what we say - read any of the press reports about the show!
