Hebocon, also known as shitty robots war, has its origins in Japan. More specifically,
Daiju Ishikawa is
the mother of all hebocons. He describes the idea to be to put one's soul in a shitty robot to fight. Winning is hereby not the objective, quite
the contrary actually: winning is a shameful achievement (for more info see first two videos). Today, hecoon has fans all over the planted including me.
After organizing Leipzig's first hebocon, me and pears had the chance to meet the mother himself in Tokyo.
Co-organized Leipzig's first hebocon in collaboration with olf and participated in the EMF hecocon with Maximilian Ilse.
