Robots to Replace Soccer Players by 2050
The RoboCup is a international joint project with an ultimate goal of developing a team of "fully autonomous humanoid robots that can win against the human world champion team in soccer" by the year 2050. Until they succeed in this goal, they're holding technical conferences, programs, and annual RoboCup tournaments that involve teams of robots competing in soccer, dancing, and rescue challenges. I'm just happy that there's an "international joint project" to put an end to the scourge of human soccer players who are trying to support themselves and their familes. It's like they just don't know when to quit. Maybe when a giant Soccerbot starts rapidly firing flaming soccer balls in their direction, they'll settle down and become clerical workers or something. Jeeze.
