Robot Wars: An oral history of the birth and death of BattleBots - SBNation.com

The second Robot Wars competition in 1995 was bigger and better, including 49 creators and their machines and a professional announcer. Attendance nearly doubled. Most importantly, with a year of combat and practice under their belts, designers focused on perfecting their methods of destruction. Ingenuity took a quantum leap forward. It’s ironic, then, that the robot that made the biggest impact that year lacked an actual weapon.
