I have never seen the show, but as a kid in the 1980's I was fascinated with this MIT ping pong ball robot competition! What a way we've come!

I saw a commercial for it today, I really like the show. Some of the bots the guys make are just stupid and you can tell by looking at them that they have no chance. Last year some dude built a bot with no wheels and moved around by throwing an internal weight back and forth, what a piece of $hit that thing was.

What I don't get is why some of the bots have no way to right themselves if/when they get flipped over. They get flipped over and they are done and then they get ripped apart.....the ripping part I do like.

i hate the inflated programming now, best to DVR and fast forward to the battles, i could really care less about the stories and the attractive women they're using as hosts

i'm big into racing drones and the DRL does the same programming, hard to watch. Just give me the action

I watched some last night and thought it was the current season. Guess not.
