NAO Statue Game (or Grandmother’s footsteps) (Video)

Here's a robot video that I found interesting:

Statues (or Grandmother's footsteps) is a popular children's game played throughout the world. In England, the game is called "Grandmother's Footsteps" and the person who is "it" turns to make sure that the players are not moving if they hear movement. In France, a variation of this game is called "1, 2, 3, soleil" (one, two, three, sun). The caller counts loudly saying 1, 2, 3, and then faces the players when he says "soleil". General rules: NOA starts out as the "Curator" and stands at the end of a room. Everyone else playing stands at the far end (distance depends upon playing area selected). The object of the game is for a "Statue" to tag the Curator by a simple tap on NAO's Head. The Curator turns his back to the room, and while he's counting, the "Statues" attempt to race across and tag the Curator (here NAO) by a simple tap on NAO's Head Whenever the Curator turns around, the Statues must freeze in position and hold that for as long as the Curator looks at them. The Curator needs to be careful - whenever his back is turned, Statues are free to move. If a Statue is caught moving, they are sent back to the starting line to begin again (or thrown out of that round, whichever way is preferred).
