First nanobot soccer competition
Imagine a mechanical Pelé or David Beckham six times smaller than an amoeba playing with a "soccer ball" no wider than a human hair on a field that can fit on a grain of rice. Purely science fiction? Not anymore.
The U.S. Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) invites the media to witness the first nanoscale soccer games at the 2007 RoboCup in Atlanta, Ga., on July 7-8, 2007.
RoboCup is an annual international competition designed to foster innovations and advances in artificial intelligence and intelligent robotics by using the game of soccer as a testing ground. NIST hopes that a competition between the smallest robots in RoboCup history will show the feasibility and accessibility of technologies for fabricating MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS), tiny mechanical devices that are built onto semiconductor chips and are measured in micrometers (millionth of a meter).
