Robots on TV

Post by petec »

I don't know if any of you guys saw it the other night but as well as having the infamous Titan the Robot (yes, that one ModelWorld fans) Big Brother this week had a task final using housemate built robots against the one and only Bigger Brother!

Has anyone spotted any other heavyweights on TV programmes?

I don't watch Big Brother but it was linked on the FRA forum, I think the makers of Big Brother have some nerve asking Ian to help after the problems they caused him :P

I've not seen any heavies on TV recently, seen a few on repeats of things like Mechanibals, however the featherweights got quite a big airing on The Gadget show recently, where the presenters designed and built their own FW to take on Block Of Wood, 360 and 2 time uk champion Beauty 2.

I'll post if I see any more on TV

PS:
Pete, you seriously watch Big Brother?!

When was that, it sounds quite good (the gadget show).

It was about 4 months ago, Robochallenge helped them build it and supplied the arena to fight in, and they were also on the Gadget Show LIVE tour and were really popular. I'll see if I can find any footage from the episode
