3 The “Itch” that started it all!
Velodyne’s founder and CEO, Dave Hall had visions of getting on TV with his creations. At the height of the popularity of “Fighting Robot” competitions, it was a perfect opportunity to catch the robotics bug. The show “Robot Wars” featured David and his Brother Bruce, demolishing the competition and finish 1st runner up in the final event. “Drillzilla” had proven to the world that it had what it takes to be a CHAMPION!!
