For those who missed the “Robot Combat League,” here is the first full episode.
Cutting past the introductions and vague robotic descriptions, the battle begin. To be honest, it has moments where it is cool, but most of the time it looks like giant versions of toys bumping into each other. Choreographed pyrotechnics liven up the hits, but I see right past it. Clumsy “fighting” aside, it looks like it might be fun later after a few versions.
The best part of the operator’s harness for the robot arms. It attempts to mimic the movement of the “boxer.” However, the bot seems limited to only a few degrees of freedom. It definitely is not like robotic puppetry.
Without further delay….
