I came across this article and thought it was pretty interesting. The competition is going on now, and can be watched online. ISU is coming up in the next hour or so. Competition was delayed by weather. Last year ISU took 3 first-places in the competition. This year, they may try to have their robot operate fully autonomously, which would be a pretty big deal according to the commentators. Anyway......thought some of you might be interested.
