A New Goal for Open Source
May 21, 2008, 22:30 (0 Talkback[s])
"The attacking left forward fakes his body to the left as he
gracefully slides to the right around his opponent. Dribbling
carefully into position, he sizes up the Australian goalie, who, he
recalls, tends to play a little aggressively to one side,
especially in that last match against Italy. An opposing fullback
closes in and the forward ducks the move, falling back slightly and
eyeing the goalie's stance. Finally he sees his chance as the
goalie shifts his weight--the forward takes the shot--he scores!
The world championship is won by the challengers! The crowd goes
wild…the photographers' bulbs flash…and the forward
returns to the locker room, to find an electrical outlet into which
he can plug himself to recharge his power cells.
"Are you intrigued and thinking: 'What?!? A team of robots
playing soccer... and beating a team of humans no less...?'"
