Coming Soon: Robot Soccer

Well, maybe not that soon:

More than a thousand football-playing robots and RoboCup fans from forty countries have descended on the Dutch technology Mecca of Eindhoven this week with one goal in mind, to beat the humans at their own game.

The tournament’s mission is to defeat the human World Cup winners by 2050, creating technology along the way that will have applications far beyond the realm of sport.


They’re going to have to do a lot more than that to make soccer palatable to Americans, however.
