1991, Robot Battles
has been staging robotic combat competitions
around the United States, with annual events
currently held in Chattanooga, Tennessee at
Chattacon, in Atlanta at
and near Nashville, Tennessee at the
Media Expo. Past events have been staged events in Florida,
Alabama, North Carolina and Colorado.
Robot Battles is one
of the oldest continuously running robotic
combat competitions in the world, and is a
direct descendant of the oldest still running
robotic event: the "Critter
Crunch" held every year at
MileHiCon in Denver.
So what makes Robot
Battles different? 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 around, and the most
involved audiences in the country.
SEPTEMBER UPDATE: Our next
MicroBattles competition will be held Saturday,
October 11th at the
Chattanooga Mini Maker Faire at the
First Tennessee Pavilion in Chattanooga,
Tennessee. We are still confirming
check-in/registration times and will post
updates here and to both our Facebook page and
Yahoo Group e-list.
Likewise, we are also
waiting official confirmation from
Media Expo for Robot Battles 51 in
Nashville the weekend of October 24-26 at the
Franklin Marriott & Conference Center. This
will be a MicroBattles event with a "for fun"
150g group for entertainment & educational
