I mean, after all who doesnt like robots? If they flip your switch, then RoboChamps is for you. It is a Microsoft sponsored contest where you get free simulated robots and simulated environments to compete against one another to win real robots. Check out the 10.net video above to see the connection to gaming. If you had a bot, how would you use it in your gaming ?
I even had to create a new tag on the blog to properly handle this post.
