It might be your first time hearing robots play soccer, but it’s not an illusion or a rumor as this event is true. And while everyone’s busy watching their favorite teams in the World Cup 2010 as it comes to the final stage, why don’t you try to save up a little grin for the RoboCup 2010?

Robot experts from all over the world gathered for a six-day event in Singapore for the RoboCup 2010. The event ended last week with the German team bagging the win. The final game was a match between the Darmstadt Dribblers and Berlin’s FUmanoids with a 7:1 triumph.


In the last year’s RoboCup in Austria, it was the two teams who played at the final game. So, apparently this year’s game was actually a rematch as the FUmanoids were hungry to win the after losing the finals.

Berlin’s FUmanoids went home trophies for the Technical Challenges leaving them not empty-handed.

Watch out for the video below and get caught on fire showing the finals of the RoboCup 2010 held in Singapore running about 9 minutes and 24 seconds. If you’d like to see more clips of these humanoids playing soccer, then you may visit BotSportTV. You can also check out updates from the two teams – the Darmstadt Dribblers and FUmanoids via Twitter.

This is kind of interesting, huh. That’s why as early as now, we’re looking forward to this event getting bigger and more exciting in the next coming years.  Watch the funny video of these robots.
