Welcome Team Coolrobots
Christian Carlberg, one of the most successful BattleBot builders in the United States, has designed and created some of the best BattleBots ever. His new bot, Dreadnought, is a 325-pound BattleBot with two wheels and two spinning discs that are designed to slice and dice other robot opponents.
Carlberg and his crew, Team Coolrobots, received a grant from the Magic: The Gathering trading card game to build a "dream BattleBot" to compete in future BattleBot competitions.
According to Carlberg, Magic and BattleBots are similar in many ways. "I knew being sponsored by Magic: The Gathering would be a good fit for us because they appreciate lethal designs. The creatures that they make for their game have the same goals that my bots do: Take your opponent down, take him apart, and stomp on whatever's left. Wizards wants my bots to be as bad-ass as their creatures, and that's something I know how to do."
This page will be following Team Coolrobots as they compete in Season 3.0 of BattleBots which airs every Tuesday night at 10:00pm on Comedy Central.
