What is Bacarobo?
More Bacarobo videos available on youtube or vimeo.
The Bacarobo Cup is a unique event. If we spoke just a little Japanese, we would know at once that something’s amiss, since in Japanese, the word baka means stupid.
The goal of the competition is to introduce the 10 most useless, stupid robot entries. Some of the entry requirements include that the robots have to function mechanically, they mustn’t have any practical function and they have to make people laugh.
Bacarobo was fist organized in Tokyo by the founder of the Japanese Maywa Denki group, Tosa Nobumichi, and since then the competition of stupid robots has been organized year after year.
It is the joint effort of Kitchen Budapest and the Trafo to reinforce the scene concerned with robots and robotics in Budapest and Europe.
