10:25 pm | By Chelsea Silberglied

At the RoboGames international robot competition in San Francisco, California, RoboJackets’ BattleBots team  successfully defeated Heavy Metal using our horizontal spinning drum BattleBot, Mandii . Unfortunately, we were knocked out of the tournament by the highly destructive robot Touro created by RioBotz, a team from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In addition, our Sumo bot took 4th place overall in the 3 kg R/C class and we were officially invited to the “International Robot Sumo Tournament 2015″ held in December in Tokyo, Japan.
