Sumobots, Programmable Sumo Wrestling Bots


Er, well, conceptually, it seems interesting. You have your little remote controlled sumo wrestling bots. You have your little arena. Fun times, right? They’re neat because you can actually program some moves into them via special software, via your computer. So this far, the folks at Firebox had me interested.

Then, they went and showed me a clip of the bots in action. Hmm… I don’t know. I mean, they don’t do much. They sort of twirl around and try to push each other off limits in a definately ballet-y, fruity kind of way. Their cute little arms don’t even smash anything up.

For $90, I was expecting a lot more destruction. Whatever though, I spose they might entertain two six year olds for ten minutes or so. Here’s the link. Story VIA Productdose.

    This is interesting especially to those who love watching sumo wrestling. It is just like the real one. But the difference is that you can program some of the moves of it via special software. Do you know sumo wrestlers, called rikishi or sumoka, train for years to be able to handle an opponent and be able to maneuver them out of the dohyo, or ring, and doing so takes great courage and someone in your corner? Many of us wrestle in the same fashion with our budgets, and at times we need the help of short term installment loans to help toss a sudden expense out of our financial arena. You don’t want to grapple with such a nefarious foe empty handed, would you? Of course you wouldn’t, and neither would anyone else, unless they knew they had multiple tools at their disposal. The good news is that you don’t have to have years of training and hardship under your belt, you only need a computer or a telephone. You can fill out the easy application on our website or over the phone, and you may even be able to get your funds within two hours, if you qualify. If you need fast, powerful help to take down a sudden financial encumbrance, short term installment loans can keep you off your back. Click to read more on Short Term Installment Loans.
