Robot Japan 5: Autonomous Basketball (Video)Here's a robot video that I found interesting:
A humanoid robot from Seoul University of Science and Technology, operating completely autonomously during the Performance competition at Robot Japan held in Tokyo. The robot locates the basketball hoop, walks across the court, positions itself, raises its arm, and tries to throw the basketball through the hoop. The difference between the first and second attempts was the robots distance from the hoop. It was further away the second time.
