As you know, TheFeed's coverage of the Robot Uprising has earned us several imaginary Pulitzer Prizes. We're usually pretty anti-robot, since we're humans and don't particularly want to be enslaved in outer space diamond mines, but today's robot news brought a smile to our lips.
This weekend, the Robo-one Soccer Cup was held in Tokyo. Fifty robots took time out of their busy schedules of bending humanity to their will to play a soccer tournament. The delightfully athletic robots are only three-feet tall and kicked a miniature soccer ball in teams of three.
Just imagine all those adorable little robot fellas, out in the sunshine, running around and kicking a lil' ol' ball around while Japanese people cheer and cheer! Robot soccer players, you have captured my heart.
Well, time to get back to diamond mine! Thanks, robots!
