Wired Pits Bot Against Bot to Find the Master of the Dr...

 

These ain't your grandpa's robots. Seems these hunks of plastic, aluminum, and sensors will do anything to impress you, whether it's a karate kick, cartwheel, boy-band pose, or saying Ai shite-ru yo! (I love you!).

Programmed for fencing (surprisingly, it's a well-balanced sword fighter). Fastest out-of-the-box startup. Luminous green eyes

Calling the RBT's gait tipsy is being polite — simply strolling is a challenge. Precanned roll maneuver failed on all surfaces. Chintzy plastic frame. Clumsy battery charger — three separate, bulky pieces and a tangle of cords
