Whatever Happened to Battlebots?

Slashdot | BattleBots & ESPN Strike TV Deal

a new deal has recently been struck with ESPN to return combat robots to the living room. Episodes will be broadcast as a series on ESPNU and ESPN2 after filmed at the competition in June 2008.

The Battle Boys home page has been Slashdotted as I write this. By the time you read this, hopefully, you’ll be able to get to it.

I, for one, welcome the return of our Robot Overlords. I miss the old Comedy Central show.

Update: It’s been pushed back to the fall. And wedge robots will not be allowed.
