We challenged Japan to the world's first giant robot duel. We are MegaBots, Inc... and Doug. AUA!
We are MegaBots, Inc. We built the Mk.II, a 12,000 pound, 15 foot tall combat robot, and immediately challenged Suidobashi Heavy Industries of Japan to a giant robot duel against their robot KURATAS. Suidobashi epically accepted, and raised the stakes to include hand-to-hand combat. We came to peace with our impending maiming in the world's first giant robot fist fight, and then recruited the likes of Grant Imahara, the founders of BattleBots, Peter Diamandis, NASA, IHMC, Howe & Howe Technologies, FonCo Creative Services and Autodesk to join our team and help us upgrade our robot for hand-to-hand combat! Ask us (...and Doug) anything!
We just launched a Kickstarter campaign, which you can check out here!

EDIT: THANKS EVERYONE, but we gotta go! This was awesome. Thank you for your support of everyone's dreams of giant fighting robots!
