Robotic armwrestling contest is totally Over the Top

Robot arm wrestler

It's not the first time we've seen this, now is it? Are we really the only ones who remember the Arm Champs and Arm Champs 2 coin-ops? Okay, maybe it's a little difference when NASA physicists make robot arm wrestlers using "artificial muscles" rather than a huge motor in a stand-up arcade game; if you're feeling lucky burly maybe you can try your luck at the Electroactive Polymer and Devices conference in San Diego, where robot arm wrestlers the world over will come to test their mettle (ahem) against one another. Still, you're crazy if you think it can beat Stallone in Over the Top—not gonna happen!
