Valkyrie, The Robot Of The Nasa

Who seems smarter to you, a robot-dog playing soccer or a football player talking to reporters? Certainly, these little dogs are awake enough to get off the field, between assists and cross, under the severe eyes of a humanoid referee. The image comes from RoboCup, the soccer championship for robots that since 1993 has been playing for teams of automatons and androids of various types. The goal of the organizers is ambitious: to achieve by 2050 an entire team of androids able to challenge, and perhaps beat, a human team world champion. Of course, robots are not all the same and therefore RoboCup expects – just like in real championships – different categories: the one for small robots, medium sized robots, quadruped robots and androids.
