Robots Play Around the Globe

Around the globe robotics are making advances by leaps and bounds as robots participate in essentially human activities such as sporting competitions and dances.

Robots designed by elementary and high school students will participate in traditional games in Manilla over the coming weekend. About 32 countries will send more than a thousand students to participate. The World Robot Olympiad will be held at the SMX Convention Centre from Nov 6 to 8.

At a South Korean robot festival, a "Humanoid Dancing Crew" is entertaining packed crowds. The five dancing robots flash red and blue lights as they groove to popular Korean songs. The 12 to 16 inch tall robots were given standing ovations for their performance.

In another room you can see robots playing football and imitate the emotions of real footballers as well. One robot holds his head in anger while another jumps with joy and punches the air. Human backers were being imitated by the robots.

Around 8,000 participants from 120 companies participated in the robot festival in South Korea this year. All kinds of robotic skills were on display.
