Transformers Just Got Real - Fighting MegaBots Challenges Japan to Giant Robot Duel

Suidobashi heavy industry! MegaBots, Inc. challenges you to a duel! You have a giant robot, we have a giant robot - we have a duty to the science fiction lovers of this world to fight them to the death. Prepare yourselves, and name the battlefield. In one year, we fight. Follow the fight!


Giant. Fighting. Robots.

MegaBots, Inc., uses cutting-edge robotics technology to create the giant piloted fighting robots of science fiction, videogames and movies. These robots fight in epic-scale arena combat the likes of which the world has never seen before.

MegaBots are 15-foot-tall, internally piloted humanoid robots that fire cannonball-sized paintballs at each other at speeds of over 120 miles per hour. As the robots battle, armor panels crack and break off, smoke and sparks pour out of the robots, limbs eventually fall off, and robots fall to the ground until only one is left standing.

The giant robots from science fiction are coming.

Real Robots.

We've built an upper body prototype of a MegaBot, a missile turret adversary, and a walking simulation of a to-scale robot by building off of Andreas Hofmann's Ph.D. thesis. We're currently developing a new, tracked version of a MegaBot in partnership with Autodesk in time for Maker Faire Bay Area 2015. Soon, we'll be designing full-scale walking robots that can compete in arena combat.

Real Combat.

"The next billion dollar sports league could be giant robots that fight to the death" - Business Insider

Prepare yourself for a new sport. Two-person teams working together to pilot these robots from the inside, high speed projectiles flying around a giant playing field at top speed, robot limbs and armor plating littering the ground after a match.

The sport of the future is here, and it's straight out of science fiction.
