- This week, the USA and Australia faced off in RoboCup Challenge final, which was held in Beijing China.
- The USA was represented by the University of Texas, who won 7-3, with Australia, represented by the University of New South Wales Runswift, facing technical difficulties (some robots didn’t work!).
- The robots are just over half a metre tall and are shaped like humans. They’re not controlled by humans, instead communicating wirelessly with each other!
- By the middle of the 21st century, RoboCup wants the World Cup winners at the time to be beaten by a team of fully autonomous humanoid robot soccer players.
