Video: The Destructive Waltz - slow-motion combat robotics

Robert Woodhead says:
Last weekend I unleashed the Casio Exilim EX-F1 camera (which can do 300, 600 and 1200 fps video) at the Carolina Combat Robotics event. This was a warmup for doing similar videography at RoboGames next month, but you might enjoy this little video, set to "The Blue Danube"

The website link< has links to other high-speed videos I've done while testing out the camera.



  1. that was really cool. I’m a big fan of the robot with the giant ring – it seems like there is finally a design that will always beat a wedge

  2. #1: Yeah, I’m glad something beats the wedges as well, it made events like these kind of boring to watch.

    I really like when the ringed robot does the barrel roll at 3:30. Sweeeeeet.

  3. I have so many “DO A BARREL ROLL” pictures on my hard drive right now, but I’m thinking of taking a screen cap….

  4. That camera is definitely on my wish list. It’s about time someone brought high speed video to the masses.

  5. I found is very relaxing, save for when the robot was attacking the fax machine; then, my internal Mortal Kombat kicked in and I found myself growling, “FINISH HIM!”
