Do you like robot carnage? Really, who doesn’t love robotic kinetic destruction? Horizontal spinners, vertical spinners, flippers, crushers, oh my... Do you love Battlebots - but don’t want to spend $20,000 or more and see it go up in smoke and fire in 3 minutes... Us too… So we’ve started RFC, Robot Fight Club! What will we do in Robot Fight Club? LEARN ⇛ BUILD ⇛ COMPETE ⇛ REPEAT ↺ The #1 Rule of Robot Fight Club is that you talk about Robot Fight Club! The #2 Rule of RFC is that everyone is welcome to join us to talk about everything around Robots and Robot Competitions! The #3 Rule of RFC is to share what you love about Robots and help raise each other up so together we build -and- battle -and- explore what is possible with robotics... :) Who should attend this talk?
