Combat Robotics Club

The Combat Robotics Club is a group of MIT students and alumni who share a passion for arena-style robot battles, in the polemic spirit of Battle Bots and Robot Wars. The team’s SawBlaze robot—a 250 lb., black and green gladiator equipped with a circular saw and flamethrower—made its big television debut on the Discovery Channel in 2018.
