What does it take to design and build giant robots that fight each other to total destruction in four months? This week we had the chance to sit down and talk with robot designer Mark Setrakian about designing robots for the new SyFy tv show Robot Combat League. We’ll hear about what software he uses, how he prototypes, and does he actually have his own personal robot?

We’ll be discussing:

  • How did you get involved with robotics design?
  • What is Robot Combat League and how are the robots controlled?
  • What do the next five years look like for home-based robotic manufacturing?
  • What advice do you have for somebody interested in learning robotics?
  • …and more!
