You thought your basement hobbies were safe from all those scary robots whose only purpose was to show you how
pathetic humans really are, but then along came Deep
Green. But if you've any hope left, you'll probably abandon it now that some German researchers have loosed on us
Star-Kick, the foosball bot. It scans the table 50 times per second tracking and determining its next move—fortunately
for us that next move can't be world domination, so it looks like Star-Kick will just have to settle for mopping the
floor with you at table soccer.
