Gather round, fellow Americans. It's time to throw ourselves behind a cause that could very well bring our nationalistic pride (jingoism?) to unforeseen levels, or, without everyone's help, sink it to new lows.
If you haven't heard, back in June, the bros at MegaBots, Inc. challenged the Japanese to a giant fighting robot duel. Japan accepted the challenge, but on one condition: no firearms. Being an American creation, the MagaBots rig, the Mk.II, was of course mostly made of guns. Now, with an all-star team in tow, MegaBots has taken to Kickstarter to fund the necessary changes to make the Mk.II ready for hand-to-hand combat—and they need your help to make it happen.
