Team USA launches Kickstarter to fund its giant robot duel with Japan

Last month, a group of American inventors challenged a team of Japanese engineers to a giant robot duel. Japan accepted the challenge, and with the date of the duel now slated for summer 2016, Team USA (aka MegaBots Inc.) wants the public’s money to make it sure it doesn’t get tossed on the scrapheap in the first round. The company has set up a Kickstarter to raise funds for an upgrade to its robot, setting $500,000 as its minimum target and adding stretch goals of up to $1.5 million for extra melee weapons, balancing algorithms, and even new life support systems, to be designed in collaboration with NASA.
