I find it amazing how smart and agile the robots are.  There are checks (OK, a bit hockey) and goalie dives for the ball, intelligent aim...

Woah, I just watched this.

I am most impressed by how they right themselves when they fall over.  I assume they are remote controlled?  And why do these little things make the Mars Rover look like a Tonka truck?  (Well, Tonka trucks are pretty cool too...)

Creepy!  Interesting and inspiring, but it creeps me out a little.
