- "Adam and Daniel’s dad set up the engineering firm, which they now own, when they were eight years old. As children, they were immersed in the business and credit their love of engineering to this."
- — The Robot Wars website on Team Mute's introduction to engineering
Adam and Daniel Emmett are twin brothers, and are engineers by trade, owning the family business opened by their father Peter Emmett over thirty years ago. The Robot Wars website claims that they were immersed in the business and credit their love of engineering to this.
Team Mute entered a heavyweight robot, Mute, a front-hinged flipper and namesake of the team, which was originally built to enter Series 4, into Series 7 of Robot Wars, and Extreme 2. Team Mute also entered two Featherweight Championships with Micro-Mute. In 2016, Team Mute entered with Bonk.
Team Mute enjoyed a fair amount of success on Robot Wars, as Micro-Mute reached the final of the Featherweight Championship in Extreme 2, while Mute was the runner-up of the New Blood Championship, and a heat winner in the Seventh Wars. However, Bonk lost its only battle, and was not selected to compete in Series 9.

Robot Wars Live EventsEdit
Mute did not appear at any Robot Wars live events despite being in working condition, although the team competed with Bonk, to minimal success. Bonk lost in the first round of the 2013 Robot Wars Winter Tour, before becoming exclusive to Robots Live! events.
Outside of Robot WarsEdit
After Robot Wars originally ended, Mute continued to fight in other FRA competitions, most notably finishing as runner-up in the 2004 Roaming Robots competition, but lost to Terrorhurtz after its removable link fell out. Mute was due to return in 2005 as the 2nd seed, but withdrew before the competition started, and Mute was then retired afterwards.
Adam Emmett also briefly owned Eric in the time Robot Wars was off-air, hoping to restore it, however, he did not have the time, and Eric was sold on again.
Team Mute also came back from retirement by entering Mute into an exhibition event hosted by Robots Live! in July 2012, where it fought several battles (most of them against Merlin), one of which where it self righted out of the arena. Since then, Mute and Bonk have continued to participate in various live events, with varying degrees of success.
