BattleBots, Furrion Exo-Bionics Mech, and more

What to expect at the Amazon re:MARS party
on May 23, 2019
We are less than two weeks away from re:MARS, Amazon's new global AI event on Machine Learning, Automation, Robotics, and Space taking place in Las Vegas on June 4-7 (register now to save your spot) . re:MARS will bring together innovative minds — including technical builders and business leaders — who translate customer problems into real-world technology solutions using AI. As we’ve shared, the event will feature a fireside chat with Amazon Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, an under-the-hood look at how Amazon uses AI to fuel its business, a chance to experience breakthrough technology, and much more. The party at re:MARS, presented by Intel, will be a memorable experience in itself. Here is a sneak peek at five unique, interactive experiences awaiting our guests.
  1. Ride in a pace car on the Las Vegas Motor Speedway

    The party will take place at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway where attendees can take a ride around the track in pace cars, or cars that set the pace for racers. And get ready for speed — these cars reach up to 120 MPH.
  2. See the Furrion Exo-Bionics Mech in action

    See a larger-than-life robot come to life. The Furrion Exo-Bionics Mech stands 15 feet tall and weighs more than 8,000 pounds. The exoskeleton is completely controlled by a human pilot inside. There will be two demos during the party.
  3. Catch the re:MARS all:STARS BattleBots Challenge

    A highlight of the party will be the re:MARS all:STARS BattleBots Challenge. Join Discovery and Amazon in hosting this unique, one-of-a-kind battle of the bots where 10 teams from the hit Discovery series will battle for the Giant Bolt title. The event will be hosted by BattleBots® stars Chris Rose, Kenny Florian, and Faruq Tauheed just 24 hours before the launch of the new BattleBots season on Discovery. Attendees will participate by choosing teams to cheer on throughout the event. Here’s a sample of the spark-flying action you can expect at the event ahead of a brand-new season of BattleBots premiering on Discovery the next day!

  4. Watch the BattleBots live stream on Twitch

    For those who can’t attend re:MARS, we’ll livestream the entire BattleBots competition. Join host Kelly Link on Twitch on Thursday, June 6 at 8:45 p.m. PDT. (Sign up here to receive a reminder). We’ll take you to the pits, give you a behind-the-scenes look at the competitors and their machines, and answer your chat questions. Viewers will have a chance to get in on the action by voting on which of the winning bots they want to see in the finale to compete for the Giant Bolt trophy.
  5. Compete in the Segway Mars Expedition

    Get ready for speed on two wheels. Attendees will have a chance to participate in the Segway Mars Expedition, an obstacle course designed for the self-balancing personal transporter.
