|PAST QBOX SHOWS
The Robotics Society of America Annual Robot Games and Expo
Sunday, December 15th
Fort Mason Building C
Door price: $5 Adults, Kids free
The Robotics Society of America is a non-profit robotics enthusiasts' group dedicated to making the mechanical arts and sciences accessible to people of all ages, intelligences and enthsiasms.
The Robot Games is the club's biannual festival. Qbox will have a presence there, as well as will NASA, builders from Battlebots (tm), and The Seemen. There will be antweight robotic combat, sumo robot competitions, and multiple other opportunities to which you can subject your blisteringly time- and expense- consuming little stainless steel bundle of joy to abject humiliation and destruction, all complete with smarmy game show host.
There will also be many beautifully configured artistic masses of metal which will show off their abilities. Some will occasionally allow you to press their buttons, even.
