Boxing Bots: Kinect-Driven Pneumatic Boxing Robots

At the SXSW Interactive Opening Party hosted by Frog Design and Microsoft, the Coding4Fun team has unveiled their latest invention, BoxingBots!

You're controlling a 6-foot tall metal robot that's trying to punch out your opponent's 6-foot tall machine. It's Real Steel in real time.

BoxingBots combines Kinect's motion sensing technology with pneumatic robots in a 6-foot square ring. Two players face off to try to knock each other's blocks off.

Check out the video to see these massive robots in action -
