Robot Riot is back at Emporium for their Winter Olympic series! Robot pilots old and new will be going for the gold in our latest tournament. Come and see who will stand among the greatest of Chicago's armchair athletes.
Robot Riot is the backyard wrestling of robotics. Tabletop-sized robots win fame and glory by either destroying their opponents or winning the hearts of the crowd. Glitter cannons are just as useful as swinging hammers! No robot? No problem! We'll have some loaner robots on standby for lucky attendees to pilot (first come, first served)!
As always our competitors are fighting for prizes and glory! We're adding a few new canine related twists to this one that may or may not involve shock collars and forcibly administered dog treats.
This event is 21+ only. It's free to enter and free to spectate! For information on how to enter and how to build your own robot contact [email protected]
The 2018 Emporium Winter Olympics is calling upon the greatest athletes in Chicago to prove their skills. This is the moment you've been training your whole life for.
