About

Hi Kickstarter my name is John Espin, the creator of Stupid Robot Fighting League.

Have a look at our YouTube channel trailer

Stupid Robot Fighting League is a fun crazy team sport where you make a robot from junk in 2 hours and fight another team that has done the same.

The twist is....

There are no robotics!

Have a look at our proof of concept video

We have gone ultra low tech. The robots are controlled with poles attached to the head, hands and feet of the robot.

This means that anyone that can operate a drill and twist some wire can participate.

Have a look at me building one of the robots out of cans

We are looking to record our first pilot episode. We have a plan laid out and it's hilarious.

We have two gopros available and phones. We just need one more camera that's a good all rounder that we can stick on a tripod and zoom and move.

I've settled on the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II (Black), this camera is the reason for this Kickstarter campaign.

I've put a heap of work into the proof of concept and there are lots of videos on YouTube to prove it.

I'm excited about the future of Stupid Robot Fighting League and I hope you are too. Please check out the pledge and rewards.

Thanks so much for stopping by and thanks so much for supporting Stupid Robot Fighting League.

Risks and challenges

The risks are:
No one gets how awesome this is and I could be left twiddling my thumbs.
We could get burgled and someone steals the camera.

Please note our outlay of expense is very small. This is intentional. We want to start this at grass roots so it will be propped up by the strength of the idea, not our prowess of marketing and hype.

The challenges are:
Getting people to understand how super fun it is to smash another robot in the face.

    The Promo Guy

    An important part of Stupid Robot Fighting League is the pre-fight promo. Remember how they used to do them in 80's pro wrestling? We have two available on the show. Fancy writing one of them? If it's weird and family friendly then we can use it.
