Robots play soccer at RoboCup 2016, what sports should they play next? (CNET's Open_Tab)
The Robot World Cup took place in Germany.
Did you guys know about this?
They fell over a lot.
Yeah because robots.
So they ain't the most graceful things in the world.
They can't play soccer.
Literally soccer kicking robots.
Actually apparently they can play a little bit.
I'm sorry this looks like the most boring **** soccer game in the history of soccer.
Can you imagine watching that in person?
Look at all these.
What's going to happen with the black team?
And what a kick.
Give me a break, robots can't play sports.
Apparently they did.
[CROSSTALK] A header!
Get outta here.
Those one's are better.
[CROSSTALK] They are just trying too hard.
Run run, no.
Goalie's not even moving.
Wake up goalie!
What are you doing!
That was a tough persistent problem there.
Probably shouldn't do it again.
So this is a thing.
There were a lot of people there inexplicably.
What sports would you want to see robots play if you had to?
Not going by this because that looked mostly awful.
It's a good precision bowling.
Dude bowling is like the easiest.
It's like a pitch machine.
Like a pitching machine.
You could just have that.
They'll bowl 300 every time.
[INAUDIBLE] That would be good.
I'd watch it.
You're a sick kid.
I like it.
That's a sick mind.
You just want [INAUDIBLE] perfection.
It wouldn't work with baseball?
They'd have to run around.
The [INAUDIBLE] derby would work.
That's like the little, the slat car tracks.
They have to pull them out of the
[LAUGH] [CROSSTALK] Jake.
Has this all figured out.
Sam, what score would you like to see roboticized?
That's a new verb.
I used to be a competitive rower.
And I'd like to see them row.
Which would be just to sort to see how well they can see the boat set.
I believe that's called a speed boat.
[LAUGH] [CROSSTALK] It's called a jet ski.
I mean you have a boat and then you have little robots sitting in it.
Okay like rowing.
That is the most analog meets digital thing ever okay.
Yeah that's a thought.
You want robot crew.
[CROSSTALK] But they have to be waterproof.
I feel like that's the big issue.
If not, would be kinda hilarious.
If not they all-
[LAUGH] Saranwrap all over robots?
Forefront of technology, pushing in.
And that's it.
Is this a precursor for the future, like robots?
I hope not.
No, that would be awful.
I hope not, but I would love to do commentary, I'm just putting that out there.
I would love to do commentary on robot olympic sports.
