Ive been itching to talk about this. My friend Mark Setrakain, was approached by a production company with deep pockets to see if he could create 8 foot humanoid robots that battle in the ring. Very much like a recent film with Hugh Jackman. Mark is probably the best animatronics engineer in the world. SyFy is showing very quick clips of the show now and then, but I can tell you no one will be disappointed by this show (at least from this forum). He built all the robots for the show and 12 contestants have to figure out how to beat the competition by finding weaknesses in the robots design. The robots move by one of the competitors wearing a telemetry suit that transfers their motion to the robots! Very cool stuff. You will be amazed.
The place: SyFy
When: February 26
Time: 10 pm
Ps. It's still early 21st century, so the robots are tethered for cables pneumatics lines etc to, but they are bipedal!
