Check out the MegaBot Mk.III as it made its first public debut at Maker Faire Bay Area 2017
The 12-ton, 430-horsepower, 16-foot tall Mk.III combat mech debuted at Maker Faire Bay Area 2017! After more than a year of design, engineering, and fabrication we brought the Mk.III to its first live performance. We still had some bugs to work out, short circuits to trace, and wrenches to turn, but by the end of the show we were punching cars hanging from cranes and giving Kickstarter backers once-in-a-lifetime giant robot rides!
Now it’s time to take the Mk.III back to the shop, take off the throttle limits that kept it at 25% speed, and tune it into fighting shape over the next few months!
