Robot Survival Game and hit sensors

Found on BotJunkie: http://www.botjunkie.com/2010/07/20/inaugural-robot-survival-game-takes-place-in-japan/

I don't care a ton for the robot wars genre, but I had to post about it this time. What got me was the interesting hit sensors in this competition. These tinfoil boxes cover up a light sensor. When the robots' airsoft guns make holes in the tinfoil, the light sensor registers more light. After a limit of holes/light/sensor reading, the robot is declared defeated.
