Currently having whizzed past its funding target on the crowdfunding site indiegogo.com this ridiculously awesome piece of kit is a customizable fighting robot that is controlled through a mobile app. It was created by Cai, the brains and founder of GJS Robot and maker of the Ganker fighting bot, a real-life grown up version of ‘Hiro’ from Big Hero 6!
It is set to retail at $349 on its launch which will hopefully be soon…
The robots can be equipped to fight with Infrared guns, swords, and lance shields. The stuff rebl kids’ dreams are made of!
The robots are fast and manoeuvrable, they are played in multiplayer battles, meaning you’ll need a friend to challenge you in your living room arena. They have great dexterity responding to mobile app commands, they record damage fairly and precisely and have customizable weapons and armour.
The future tech of these robots is even more exciting if that’s possible. The development plan is to include point of view cameras and the ability to set up users to control and view these through virtual reality headsets.
Once more people get set up and using these robots the next step will be robot fighting competitions and tournaments where the best of the best can gather and pit their skills in the ultimate arena!
I’m sure, if you’re anything like the rebl team here, you’ll be keeping a close eye on the development of this truly awesome robot fighting toy!
