MegaBots Inc., an American startup company creating giant robots for robotic sports competitions, was presenting its new fighting machine, Mk. III, on Saturday at San Mateo's Maker Faire in California ahead of the BattleBots robot competition. The robot is the third produced by the company. It weighs 10 tons, and its constructors say it can fire projectiles at around 130mph. Mk. III is to fight with Japan’s Kuratas this August.
