Robot Wars returns tonight!

I’m very excited that #robotwars returns on the BBC tonight (UK).  It’s been 12 years since it last aired and, this time around, it has the always interesting Dr Lucy Rogers on the judging panel and is being hosted by none other than Dara O’Briain.

In the run up (it’s now just 30 minutes from the show airing) I set up a Twitter Monitor (Raspberry Pi coupled to a Pimoroni Blinkt) to flash on every mention the of the Robot Wars hashtag.  Needless to say, it has been and continues to go absolutely crazy!  It’s almost flashing continuously.

BBC Two tonight at 8pm (UK).
