★ Robot Marathon.... in Japan of course ★

In Osaka today, the worlds first Robot marathon begins. Don't take their size for granted - these guys are serious - as you can see from the training video below. It will take approximately four days to "run" the  42 Kilometers.

Personally, we're rooting for the 'flappy' one in second place - let's hope he pulls it together by race time. May the best robot win!

As they say in Robot speak (Binary, to you and me):
01000111 01101111 01101111 01100100 00100000 01101100 01110101 01100011 01101011 00100000 01010010 01101111 01100010 01101111 01110100 01110011

    Looks like the 'flappy' won just didn't have the 'beans' to come away with the win. Hope he wasn't the one who pulled out after the first lap though.

    Congratulations to the humanoid winner!
