Chimera Arts, a new makerspace in Sebastopol, Calif., hosted one of its first public events this Saturday, the 2013 Sonoma Ant Wars. Sonoma Ant Wars is a combat robot competition. Crowds gathered to watch fleaweights, antweights, and beetlebots bash, crash, grind, and chop each other in well-organized mayhem. Have a look at the fun in the images and video below.
(Chimera Arts will also be the broadcast location of MAKE’s international maker meetup/volume 35 release party this Thursday, Aug. 1. Click here for details.)
