Robot Footballers Are Too Fragile For The NFL, But They’d Need To Catch Them First

Apparently robots partaking in athletics is becoming a recognized venue. I’m not talking about Battle Bots, although I’ve heard that the show is planned to make a comeback. I’m talking about straight-up American football (ironically taking place in Japan.)

The video above shows two teams consisting of pure robotics, battling it out on a mini-Football field. Now, these bots aren’t quite up to snuff with say, the NFL. Not yet at least. It’s more along the lines of Foosball. Their small stature and fragile frames couldn’t withstand a bulky linebackers tackle, but they are really fricken fast. — Andrew Dobrow
