It’s back! See some of the country’s top combat robots do battle this October long weekend in the Australian Robowars National Championships 2014. Take your place ringside as bot builders go head-to-head in the specially designed combat arena with their Featherweight (13.6kg) and Antweight (150g) machines. Destruction is the name of the game and sparks will fly!

Watch the robots spin and smash their way through two-days of competition. Will it be survival of the strongest or smartest? Which robots will outlast all others in their field and be named Australia’s best? Find out at the Ipswich Art Gallery when it hosts the Australian Robowars Nationals 2014.
