  1. Thanks for the link, Lem. You beat me to posting it! The two robots shown in the video are both prototypes of Nao. There were made on a rapid prototyping machine and were very fragile. The final version will be custom made from molded plastic and quite sturdy.

    They’ll need to be extra tough, especially since they’ll be hitting on each other in those fast paced soccer games!
