Robot football. View of a Sony legged robot dog scoring a goal during a demonstration at RoboCup- 98, the 1998 World Robot Soccer Championships. This international event promotes the development of mobile, co-operative robots through competitive football games. The robots seen here are being designed as electronic pets. They respond to whistling and display simple emotions like anger and happiness. These tiny 23 cm long robot dogs can cover a distance of over 6 metres in a minute. RoboCup-98, the second RoboCup, was held in Paris, France.
