Will and Guy's - Football Robots
Will and Guy's Football Robot Stories
Julian Ryall reported from Tokyo for The Scotsman newspaper on January 10, 2006, that Japanese robotics experts at Keio University, Tokyo claim that their robots will beat humans at football one day. The robots stand some 38 cm tall and weigh only 2.4kg.
Shu Ishiguro, head of Robot Laboratory in Osaka, is confident that this will happen and that by 2050 the human winners of the World Cup will be defeated. His fellow scientists are working on prototypes as you are reading this report.
Will is doubtful that this could ever happen but has to admit that he probably won't be around to see it if it does come to fruition.
N.B. England have their own Robot - Peter Crouch complete with dance
We all know that goal keepers are crazy, but road football? Nutty. By the way, who is that goal keeper? Guy thinks it's Oliver Kahn, the German and Bayern M�nchen goalie.
Incidentally the only thing robotic about Oliver Kahn was is ability to locate the ball in the penalty area.
