CeBIT 2010: Why Rooney need not fear robots
Researchers from B-Human ran some public training sessions for their football playing robots while at CeBIT.
B-Human is a University of Bremen project that lets computing and robotics students work with researchers to develop top-end football players for the RoboCup.
At CeBIT in Hannover this week, the footie robots were practicing their moves for all to see.
The robots are used to playing on a larger field, so their kicks weren't quite tight enough for the tiny demonstration area. But despite their moves being not quite on par with the likes of Wayne Rooney, the robot players still managed to draw crowds in the Future Parc hall.
Read on to find out how the robots hope to win the World Cup by 2050.
