Imagine a world devoid of life, where abandoned, bullet-riddled buildings serve as def facto confines wherein robotic goliaths battle for supremacy. We’ve all had that wonderful fantasy, right? Now you can make it happen. Sort of.
This Kickstarter wants a few lousy grand to do what most of us only dream of, create a mech warrior wonderland. Well, actually they’d use the money to create a protective arena in which to house custom, high powered, radio-controlled bots. The group of “hobbyists, robotics engineers, students, and various humans” have apparently created robots powerful enough to be a threat to bystanders, and need a safe place in which to send their bots to battle. What’s the payoff for contributors? Do the math: a sturdier arena allows for more protection. More protection allows for more powerful projectiles. More projectiles means more head-banging awesomeness. Where’s my wallet?
