You want a piece of me, meatbag?

Ever wanted a robot that could kick your ass? Well you are in luck because Kris Tressider invented a robot that can do precisely that (well it actually can’t kick you because it doesn’t have legs, but it can pound your face in with its fists). Kris is a structural engineer in Australia who built a robot utilizing a couple windshield wiper motors, some boxing gloves, and a few other miscellaneous items. The sole purpose of his creation was to give him someone he could fight with. The robot throws random jabs and hooks and also has a berserk mode. Kris calls it Punching Pro, and hopes to sell them at a $1000 each.

You can learn more about Punching Pro by visiting Kris’ site which includes pictures and videos.
