Japanese national Tomio Sugiura and the Sugiura family invested in and developed a fighting robot that became the ROBO-ONE champion – the Dynamizer.
Sugiura, a star in the world of robotics, has been in the ROBO-ONE competition since 2002. Standing at 35cm and weighing 2.3kg, Dynamizer can ski, play soccer, play baseball, cook, fish, and can even mow the lawn while its owner rests.
The Dynamizer was featured in the 2010 ROBO-ONE competition, which was slated to take place in outer space. It met another popular and prized fighting robot, the Metallic Fighter.
