RoboCup in Bremen
A competitor at the RoboCup 2006 games takes aim to send a ball past a player for the opposing team. The robotic soccer tournament, talking place in Bremen, Germany, this week, is running in parallel with the World Cup soccer extravaganza.
Ayami Yohoyama of Japan's Twades robo-soccer team programs her Aibo for a match.
Cornered! But this diminutive robot could still get the ball in the goal--with a heaping dose of bending it like Beckham.
