We might not have a droid army at our beck and call…yet, but in real life we can still watch robots battle each other for our amusement during the international battle bot competition RoboGames!
While 250-pound robots fought in the arena, R2-D2 was on the sidelines watching all the action like a real robo-celebrity. R2-D2 also visited backstage to say hello to the robot builders, to cheer students on at Bot Ball, and to hang out out with the next generation of robot overlords.
