RoboGames are invading Austin during the Maker Faire next month.  Austin favorite, The Judge, will be battling with the 340 pound Canadian robot Ziggy to earn bragging rights in the Super Heavyweight division.

Guaranteed mayhem as 27 robots in 5 weight classes battle it out in the arena.  Failure is most definitely an option, especially when accompanied by twisted shards of metal, smoke, and fire.

I’ll be attending Maker Faire for both October 18th and 19th.  Drop me an email if you’ll be there.  I’d love to meet some GeekDad readers and get pictures for our GeekDad Flickr Pool.

You can read more about the battles in the press release.  I’ve attached a video of Ziggy vs The Judge from RoboGames 2007 after the jump.  Keep in mind that these metal beasts weigh in north of 300 lbs when you see how high Ziggy is flipping The Judge.
