"The controller is a nunchaku type. When you punch with your right or left hand, the robot punches with the same hand. By combining punches skillfully, you can box via the robot. Moving forward and turning are also linked to punching. So this system enables a new style of boxing, where you hit the other robot by punching while moving around to get a good position."

The right punch is a long range straight right, and the left is a strong hook, so you need to use a combination of punches with the right timing and strategy to knock out your opponent.

"This system uses the 2.4 GHz frequency, which is even better than infrared. It means the robot punches as soon as you make a move. So, this system feels very smooth to use."

The controller features speakers so you can hear the sound of the punch as well as if damage is caused. There is also an LED damage meter which lights up every time a robot is hit. If a robot is punched 5 times a technical knockout is called and the round is stopped.

"You can also play in training mode, by punching a plastic bottle or doing a slalom between erasers. But really, it's most fun to have boxing matches between two people. That's the main way to play with this system."

"Another part of the concept is, parents and children can have fun together. When kids play with this, their parents can see how enjoyable it is, and use it as a chance to get a conversation going."
