TechCrunch:This $1,600 fighting robot toy kicks serious butt

on March 13, 2019

All right, I’m impressed. I’m not sure I’m $1,600 impressed, but I definitely want one of these Zeus battling robots from Pilot Labs. The robot is about 14-inches tall, with a design that was clearly influenced by the lovable lead in The Iron Giant.

Pilot was on-hand at CES this week, showing the ‘bot to a handful of folks. We probably should have booked the Shenzhen-based startup a bit earlier, because by the time they actually arrived at the TechCrunch booth, this model was the last standing of the three models it brought to the show. No one ever said the job of a fighting robot was an easy one.
