To keep competitors motivated and constantly improving their skills, it’s important to present them with new challenges coupled with energy, speed, and excitement. While most Westerners think that Japanese humanoid robot competitions are effectively kung-fu matches, the actual competitions here include a wide range of different games.

For example, at the 2nd Housei University Robot Competition held in Tokyo today, the first competition stage involves two robots battling each other to push a big ball down a narrow channel and across their opponents goal.
