Battle bots you can afford shoot each other in first person view

Gadgets
Robotic sports are getting more popular with sports like first person view drone racing, robotic motorcycle races, and of course, giant robot battles. Well, if building a giant robot to battle your friends seems like a huge pipe dream, then check out the new app-controlled FPV robots from GJS ROBOT in China. Are these the future of gaming? GJS Robot is currently selling the Ganker robot, which does battle using a large sword. The robot is very fast and agile, and connects to your phone via Bluetooth. The Ganker fighting bot has different skill settings, as well as pre-set moves and fighting stances. The scoring system keeps track of how many times a bot makes contact with the other bot using sensors around the robot's body. Geio is GJS Robot's next generation fighting robot. Geio mixes first person shooting games with first person view experiences, much like some drone racing/battle games we've seen recently. Geobot uses a hightech targeting system to seek and destroy other enemy Geobots in the game. The robot is equipped with an AI chip similar to what is currently being used in some self driving cars that assists Geo in autoscanning, tracking and recognizing enemies on the battlefield. The robot connects to your phone via Wi-Fi and has a built in camera that displays the robot's FPV on your phone, much like a drone does. GJS Robot is currently devoloping and raising funds for VR goggles that will also connect via Wi-Fi, giving the user a view from inside the robot. Currently, there are three types of users that GJS Robot is Is focused on. These include normal hobbyists, educational users, and even organizers who put on robot battle competitions which help with marketing the robots. DGS Robots sent us a couple of their geo bots to try out here in the CNET offices and we had a blast The GeoBots are very easy to connect via wi-fi, and they are super fast and durable. A couple times, we accidentally crashed them into a wall, and the batteries popped out of the bottom, so the robot lost power. The AR on the phone screen could be improved with flying bullets or animations of explosions. And I was also missing some cool sound effects, which could easily be added into a future update. [MUSIC] But we really did like the tactile feedback when the phone would vibrate, much like a video game when you're getting shot, which gives you a sense of urgency to get out of the line of fire. Make sure to check out some more fun robots, as well as some terrifying ones at CNET.COM.
