But, now, I'd like to be the first to announce the winner to the English press.
Ladies and gentlemen... The winner is.... er, this dude....
Heck, what's his name? I don't know. Let's just call him "Mr. We Love Osaka Dude." He's, er,... she's, it's the winner of the world's first robot marathon ever held and it's was an exciting race!
Omedetou gozaimasu! (Congratulations!)
National Post Reports:
Robot Marathon Ran in Osaka
A group of knee-high androids have crossed the starting line in Osaka, Japan for the first ever robot marathon, reported the BBC. The race, which started on Thursday, is expected to take about four days and will require 423 laps around an indoor track. The rules are as follows: bot operators are allowed to change robots' batteries and motors during the race, but they can't pick them up if they fall over - the droids must right themselves.
Since I enjoy British humor a lot, here two funny takes by the Brits on the festivities. Enjoy!
