Saw this news last night. Fuck yes.
About once a year or so I fall down a youtube hole of watching robot fighting videos. There's still leagues and shit. Any robot that uses spinning is tits. Whether it's the inverted bowl style bots, the big flat cylindrical ones, ones with a big weightflywheel or drum, whatever it is. They send shit flying and it's so fun to watch. Wedgebots can eat a dick.
edit: Something like this beats the shit out of two triangles bumping in to eachother for 3 minutes.
