The Syfy channel is hosting a new series, Robot Combat League, with “tournament-style battles between humanoid robots controlled by human robo-jockeys.” This new series will feature twelve teams consisting of a fighter (a “robo-jockey”) and a robotics engineer (a “robo-tech”). Each team is paired with its own unique robot and will fight in a first-of-its kind competition using a high-tech exo-suit that translates their movements to their robot.

Two teams have Tau Beta Pi members:

Team Commander consists of Paulo J. Younse, (FL A 2005) a NASA robotics engineer, as the robo-tech partnered with a U.S. military hero and helicopter pilot. Team Drone Strike consists of Fazlul R. Zubair, (CA T 2004) systems engineer, as the robo-tech partnered with a pro-gamer.
