Is there anything better than robots playing sports? I think not. The latest in miniature robot sports games is TOMY Soccerborgs. These interactive robot toys for kids let them play a game of soccer, and battle it out on your table.
The robots come in sets of two with a remote control for each. Just move your bots around the field to shoot the ball into your opponent’s net. You can tackle, dribble, pass and shoot. You can even adjust the bumpers wider so that you can steal the ball from your opponent. They have two types of kicks: the right leg kicks the ball along the ground while the left leg can kick it into the air.
It makes me pretty excited about the robot sports that are coming our way in the future. And let’s face it, if we can keep real-life robots busy with sports, they won’t kill us.
The set comes with 2 Robots, 4 bumpers, 2 balls, 2 remote controls, 2 goals, and 1 sticker pack. The full set requires 10 AAA batteries. Naturally, they are not included. Soccerborgs are normally priced at $59.99, but they’re currently on sale on Amazon for just $27.99.
This is a fun game for kids that I would steal to play with myself.
It isn’t everyday that one gets the opportunity to meet Philippe Starck, let alone work with him! The Parisian all-round designer is probably one of the best known names in the industry.
