HEBOCON IS COMING TO PHILADELPHIA!
“a robot fight club imagined by David Lynch and Pee-wee Herman!”-CNET
HEBOCON is a robot contest for the technically ungifted. The first tournament was held in Tokyo in July 19, 2014.
Hebocon is a robot sumo-wrestling tournament for those who don’t have the technical skills to actually make robots. In the first battle, 31 pseudo-robots that don’t even move properly came together to go head to head. The robots in this tournament are nothing like what their builders initially imagined them to be. One robot was forgotten on the train. Any strategy made with careful planning only resulted in failure. Entrants who enter the ring brag about their robot’s secret moves that don’t really exist. This is the heated battle between crappy but lovable robots.
Join us at Little Berlin for Robot Fight Club. Throughout the night we’ll demonstrate examples of terrible robots and have lots of parts so you can build your own. Have any useful supplies like, motors, RC cars, wind-up spring cars, or rock-em-sock-em robots? Bring ‘em along. You can also register for our upcoming giant Hebocon Philadelphia (“Robot Contest For Dummies”) Competition to be held late February.
