Dekorobo War gives bi-ped robots a chance to play

September 3, 2010

The possibilities that robotics can hold for the amusement sector still have barely been tapped but we’ve seen many examples: Marubot Football League, RoboGol, RoboBasho, Robo Catcher and Slambot are a few  that come to mind. We can now add Dekorobo War to that list, it’s a new game that has been developed by the makers of the Robo Catcher crane machines. One thing that makes the robots notable here is that while the other games listed above use robots fitted with wheels, the robots in Dekorobo War and Robo Catcher are bi-pedal machines. The downside to this would be movement – as you can see in the video below, it’s going to be a while before bi-ped robots are participating in any Metal Slug or Sin & Punishment style games.

Dekorobo War will be testing in Japan starting next week on the 8th to the 15th.
