The Kid Should See This
Robots Bluethunder? and Metallic Fighter face each other in this robot sword match for ROBO-ONE’s bipedal walking robot fighting games. Like fencing, their aim seems to be about scoring points rather than damaging their opponent. And each is built to get back up pretty quickly after it falls.
Compare this competition to that of
these off-balance, soccer-playing robots from nine-ish years ago
. Then watch
Disney Imagineering’s autonomous robot stunt doubles
Bonus: Fencing 101 taught by Olympians.
