"THE SOCCER BOT 

1.5 METERS | Last summer, the U.S. team fell just short in its bid to win the women's World Cup. It didn't have the same problem at RoboCup 2011. Entered in the Humanoid League, the remote-controlled CHARLI-2 robot defeated Singapore's Robo Erectus. Though stiff, deliberate and slower than a turtle, the bot — created at Virginia Tech by Dennis Hong — secured the prestigious Louis Vuitton Best Humanoid award. According to the RoboCup website, the organization's goal is to create a team capable of defeating human opponents by 2050."
