Darth Vader Vs Meccanoid

At the world skills UK Show at the NEC last year, we were invited to showcase some future IT careers and skills that students would need. I brought along my Meccanoid robot. Another University was located in a stand behind us with an inflatable remote controlled Darth Vader robot. At the end of the day as boredom set in, I sent Meccanoid to sort out this robot once and for all.

I can confirm that Meccanoid with his articulated arms and being twice the size and complexity of Darth did knock him over and win the battle (very easily) much to every one’s amusement. So if you ever wondered who would win in a battle between light and dark – its the light.
