Help Kickstart Real-Life Mech Warfare with a New Arena - IEEE Spectrum - http://spectrum.ieee.org/automaton/robotics/diy/help-kickstar...
"You remember Mech Warfare from RoboGames: it's where people build walking robots, arm them with BB guns, and set them lose against each other in a destructible cityscape. The trick? The human pilot can't see their robot at all: the driving and shooting is all done through first-person cameras in the robots themselves, just like a video game. Except real. It's one of the most awesome things, you know, ever, and Mech Warfare needs your help building a bigger, better, and safer arena so that they can outfit their robots with even more dangerous weaponry." ‎- silpol
