Hockey-playing Robot on CBC News (Video)

Jennifer, the DARwin-OP humanoid robot that's being taught to play ice hockey at the University of Manitoba is getting great press coverage, including the video segment above that ran on CBC News.

Adapting the robot to play a challenge like ice hockey is a significant challenge. Still, the way that the press portrays the robot as being "Canadian" is a bit misleading.
