Carlo Bertocchini sent in this charming photo of two of his latest robotic creations with his two boys. Many of the metal robot parts were created with the help of Big Blue Saw.
You may know Carlo as the creator of BioHazard, one of the greatest fighting robots of all time and champion of such events as Robot Wars and BattleBots. This picture was taken at the recent at Maker Faire 2007 in the San Francisco Bay area.
The machines shown here are a new sort of fighting robot: roboboxers. These brawling automatons are the latest in the sweet science, built to pummel each other with their fists. Posing with the electronic pugilists are Mr. Bertocchini's boys: on the left is three year old Dominic. Lucas, on the right, is almost five years old.
