These remote controlled fighting robots are called Battroborg 20, and they will be released in Japan on the 14th of July.
“The controller is a nunchaku type. When you punch with your right or left hand, the robot punches with the same hand. By combining punches skillfully, you can box via the robot. Moving forward and turning are also linked to punching. So this system enables a new style of boxing, where you hit the other robot by punching while moving around to get a good position.”
“This system uses the 2.4 GHz frequency, which is even better than infrared. It means the robot punches as soon as you make a move. So, this system feels very smooth to use.”
