Hebocon is a robot sumo wrestling tournament for those who don’t have the technical skills to actually make robots (or those who want a challenge).
The robots in this tournament are nothing like what their builders initially imagined them to be, they break, they forfeit and sometimes they don’t even move. To ensure that all the robots are awful, there is even a “high-tech penalty” which punishes entrants who build their robot competently and with high-end features. This is the heated battle between crappy, but lovable robots.
The concept comes from Japan from where it has spread all over the world.
