Hebocon is a robot sumo-wrestling competition for those who are not technically gifted. It is a competition where crappy robots that can just barely move gather and somehow manage to engage in odd, awkward battles. Originated from Japan, Hebocon comes from the word, “Heboi”. “Heboi” is used to describe something that is technically poor, or low in quality. The object of Hebocon is to enjoy Heboiness.
