Robo-Soccer is Dead - Long Live Robot Battle Ball!

I suppose everybody agrees, that Robo-Soccer is kinda lame, but the Japanese have taken the game to another level, introducing ROBO ONE - Robot Battle Ball at Kawasaki ROBO-ONE Special competition.

The bots don't have to act fully autonomous, which makes the game a lot faster and "real" and they are allowed to make "full body-contact". Yes.
Another highlight in this video are the costumes of some of the Robo-Ones.
