Robo Riots

This event has ended

National Basketball Arena, Saturday 16th November - Sunday 17th November

Robo Riots brings famous robots from TVs Robot Wars to battle it out live in Dublin. Plus robot boxing and famous robots from film and screen like R2-D2 and a Dalek from Doctor Who.

Their ultimate goal is to destroy or disable the opponent to reign supreme in Robot Combat Sports. This is the first full length heavyweight combat robot tournament of its scale in Ireland.

Robo Riots is organised by the Robot Wars Irish team who created one of the most iconic combat robots, the flaming furball Diotoir, headed by Irish Roboticist Peter Redmond. Speaking about the event, Redmond said: “Robot battling is a true sport of the future. It has all the right elements: mad science, gladiatorial combat, plucky garage inventors, and hi-tech machinery. Brutally effective, utterly vicious machines have now evolved from one based on an engineering challenge, to that of hi-tech operational challenge with space age materials.”
