What makes Orte unique...

Initially called Bigger Brother 2, Orte is the successor to Ian Watts’ robot Bigger Brother, which competed in the original series of Robot Wars. Captain Ian’s design of Orte was inspired by stealth fighter jets, and he says that it has the “speed, agility and firepower of one.” Captain, Ian, has built robots for Top Gear, Holby City, Technogames, Mechanoids, and even built a crisp-eating robot for Kettle Chips. Captain Ian’s son, Sam, owns the original prototype for our very own house robot, Matilda.
