Atlanta Tech Edge - Robot Battles 54

Segment of Atlanta Tech Edge on WXIA-TV (11Alive) in Atlanta.

Posted by Robot Battles on Tuesday, September 15, 2015
Since 1991, Robot Battles has been staging robotic combat competitions (mostly) around the southern United States.

Robot Battles is one of the oldest continuously running robotic combat competitions in the world. We proudly trace our roots to the Denver Mad Scientists Club and are a direct descendent of the "Critter Crunch" robotic competition held every year at MileHiCon in Denver, which began back in 1987 (and is still going strong).

This year, we have scheduled events in Atlanta at MomoCon and DragonCon, as well as in Chattanooga at the Chattanooga Mini-Maker Faire. Over the years, we have held over 60 events at conventions, Maker Faires, and game clubs in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina, Florida, Colorado, and as far away as Barcelona, Spain.

But just what makes Robot Battles different from other robotic events? Well, we don't have a TV show, we don't have supermodels, and we don't have huge cash prizes. What we do have is a creatively unique host, some of the most imaginative builders and designers in the sport, and the most involved audiences in the country (in our humble opinion). And, of course, lots and lots of very intense one-on-one mechanical mayhem matches. Which is what it's all about.

As always, if you have any other questions about the newly updated and revised ruleset or future events, please feel free to contact us directly, ask us on Facebook, or join our Yahoo! Group. And while you're at it, how about doing a little shopping?

Upcoming 2017 Robot Battles Events & Competitions

After a great first year, we're back for MomoCon at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta over the Memorial Day Weekend for Robot Battles 63. This will be a two-day event featuring all four of our weight classes.

On Saturday, May 27th, we'll be running the "insect" weight classes (one and three pounds) in the arena, and then on Sunday, May 28th, we'll be running the 12 and 30 pound classes on the sumo stage.

Check-in and registration begins at 10 a.m. for competitors, with the competition starting at Noon on both days. Be sure to check out our Facebook event page for last minute details and other useful information.

Come out and be part of one of the fastest growing events of the season! Here's where we'll be in the main gaming hall (lower right near First Aid):

For the 27th year in a row, we will be returning to Atlanta for the DragonCon convention and our largest competition of the year, featuring all four weight classes. Held for two days over the Labor Day Weekend, this is the one robotic event of the year you do NOT want to miss! For those that want some education along with their entertainment, we'll be back at the Chattanooga Mini-Maker Faire on Saturday, September 9th at the First Tennessee Pavilion. We'll have a full MicroBattles competition along with hands-on workshops and demos by our experienced builders.
