You’ll have seen Robot Wars. But have you witnessed Japanese robot sumo wrestling?
Well, in Japan they condense the idea into a small sumo ring and have robots battle it out for supremacy. Japanese robot sumo wrestling is incredibly fast – “blink and you’ll miss it” type of fast. But unlike Robot Wars, humans are no longer in control once the fight starts.
Each robot acts on “pre-programmed behaviours”. It’s survival of the fittest but with Japanese sumo wrestler robots, basically. The video below shows a compilation of matches. If Morpheus and Neo were robots, this is how they’d fight.
