The first video in the TASBot Re: (TASBot Revisited) series is out! TASBot Re: Gradius covers our first run from AGDQ 2014.

Historians wanted: Inquire here.


From TASBot Wiki

TASBot is our cute robot mascot representative of the entire TASBot community (especially on Discord) that plays games at Charity events.


R.O.B. prototype TASBot

TASBot started life as a R.O.B. robot with Legos and a wire to drive his LED.

TASBot-X project

TASBot's R.O.B. base was replaced through a multiyear community effort in the TASBot-X project which resulted in his current form.

TASBot as an individual

TASBot had more than one body even very early on; his first R.O.B. form was lent by a local collector near dwangoAC and returned to him in time, while early on a R.O.B. plus an NES/SNES replay device from true was a prize at an early GDQ. However, only one TASBot body is shown to an audience at a time, preserving the suspension of disbelief around his character in a similar manner to how Buster was treated on the show Mythbusters. There are now multiple TASBot bodies, recently referred to as TASBods, allowing TASBot to appear at multiple locations in a way similar to how there is a Mickey Mouse in Disneyland and Disney World that never meet in person.
