Abstract:

Any good UNUSUAL ROBOTICS project is very welcome. If practical...even better!

Dr Popovic and Susanne Seitinger designed and constructed lively self-propelled robotic soccer/beach ball (in a single week in summer '05) and then had some fun testing them on the MIT campus. Cornelle King gentlemanly assisted ball to enter elevator.
