They play Connect Four. They mix martinis. They paint. And at this sixth annual event, robots go head-to-head in categories from
navigation to remote-controlled flame throwing. In the past two years, the gathering has doubled to 70 events and
entrants from more than 80 countries. Spectators will witness AI
technology powering amateurs’ homespun creations. Our favorite contest: the SOBotz (translation: 16-ounce robots) Combat. May the best bot win — and survive. —Kate Rockwood
