Twilight Foundry Robotics is the robot combat team behind BattleBots Update, established in 2001. Our robot building philosophy is “cheap is good, free is better”; the overwhelming majority of our bots are created from parts picked out of toys, consumer electronics, and appliances. Our very first robot, Metalhead, was built in 2000 and still competes to this day.

We fancy ourselves an “entertainment team” and our creations are frequently favorites with audiences at the events we attend. Our team and our robots have made appearances in promotional media for LEGO Mindstorms and the engineering school at Del Mar College. We’ve also had our work featured in the 2006 web series “The Radio F Show”.

Having fun is our #1 priority above all else, including winning. We take a very basic and proven approach to building robots in an effort to show younger fans “yes you can” when it comes to not just building robots, but getting into engineering in general.
