Killer Robots on YouTube, Watch It While It Lasts

Don't tell anyone, but this looks to be a full-length copy of Killer Robots that's made an appearance on YouTube. We were off giving a talk (and watching other events) and weren't able to brave the mobs of delirious robot fans around the RoboGames heavyweight combat arena, but the Science Channel brought in a squad of cameramen led by Grant Imahara (from Mythbusters) to tape the whole thing.

If you're in too much of a hurry to watch it all, you should probably see a doctor and/or get your priorities straight, but the last two matches (starting at about 36:00) are some the best that I've seen in the last three years of RoboGames and Combots. Now hurry up and watch it already, 'cause there's no telling how long it's going to last online and who knows when it'll be on TV again.
