The Real-Life Iron Man – MegaBots
Have you watched Iron Man? The giant robots from science fiction are coming. We met with Matt from MegaBots at TC Summer Party in Los Angeles, and he told us all about his GIANT FIGHTING ROBOTS. Tune in for the Mega Battle!
ABOUT MEGABOTS INC.
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 shear off and litter the field, smoke and sparks pour out of the chassis, massive robotic limbs tear off, and robots crumple to the ground until only one is left standing.
