To spice it up, robotics events were conducted like Death Race, Collision Course, Dirt Race and League of Machines. It opened up a platform for techie warriors to fight their way out.

“The fun event named League of Machines had more than 20 participants presenting a nerve wracking competition between the robots,” said Sreeraj K, convener of the fest. Other robotic events included transporter where a robot would place a cylinder at a destined spot, Death race where a robot had to overcome obstacles and reach the finishing point and Accelertobotix where robots were navigated by means of hand gestures to approach the end point.
