The show will resemble a real life version of the film Real Steel, with giant robots doing battle as they are controlled by shadowboxing operators whose movements are translated to the action. Syfy president Mark Stern had the following to say about the show… “It has always been our desire — and it’s really come around perennially — to update and do Battle Bots for the new century. Can we do Real Steel? Are we at a place where you can do real bipedal robots? Every time we tried to do it [the project] was stymied by the technology.”
