    Robot kicker no match for NFL pro

    [/url][http://dvice.com/archives/2010/04/robot-kicker-no.php][/url]

    Ziggy the Combot is a powerful, badass robot. In the lab, it can consistently boot a football a whopping 60 yards, farther than almost any human can kick. But in the real world, against a real NFL kicker? It came up short.

    That's because unlike in a lab, where the bot kicked from concrete, on a grass field a significant portion of its energy was sent down into the softer ground rather than into the ball. That gave 49ers kicker Joe Nedney the edge.

    Maybe next year, Ziggy.

    I'm pretty sure that Fred Cox is a robot.

    It is only a matter of time before we have a league full of robots in Japan ready to challenge America for the rights to fast food
