We hosted a Kilobots Lite event at the Centre Mall on March 7-8. If you missed it, we filmed all the fights and composed two playlists for your entertainment pleasure! (Read more for links.)
Dennis Beck captured some great shots of the action and has uploaded them into an album here: https://imageshack.com/a/zKEq/1 He has also uploaded some videos here: http://www.youtube.com/user/dbmotorsports/ For all the fights in HD (from inside the arena!), check out Dirk Stonehouse’s channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/needmorercs/ And my personal favourite: Antweight Rumble!
