Robot footballers!

I came across this link a couple days ago, and it amused me because, well, it's a tiny robot footballer. How can you not be amused by that?

And so I was poking around on Google for more information and found RoboCup.

RoboCup is an international joint project to promote AI, robotics, and other field. It is an attempt to foster AI and intelligent robotics by providing a standar problem where wide range of technologies can be integrated and examined.... The ultimate goal of the RoboCup project is By 2050, develop a fully autonomous humanoid robots that can win against the human world champion team in soccer [sic].

And then, presumably, Jose Mourinho will try to buy the robots.

In other news that amused me today, Frank Lampard, who as far as I know is not a robot, is making a series of video diaries as a promo for something or other. And, ok, when I read "Frank Lampard video," I was expecting something...slightly different. I'm just saying.

And just to finish things off: drunk Liverpool players, doing what I will charitably describe as singing. Don't you just love the internets?

I think that's totally a shout out for my football blog.

Robot and everything. ;)

Oh, the singing. I'm pretty sure that's the same night that the best picture ever was taken. God, my team is full of dorks.
