Submission + - Watch the World's First Bipedal Robot Marathon (

kkleiner writes: "History is in the making in Japan, as humanoid robots compete to see who will be the first to run a full length marathon (26.2 miles/42.2km). You can watch the whole thing live on UStream, even taking a glance through the eyes of one of the competitors! Organized by Vstone, makers of the Robovie line of small scale robots, the “Robomara Full” or Robot Challenge will take place over three days from February 24th through the 27th in Osaka. In order to win a bot must complete 422 laps of a 100 meter course outlined on the 11th floor of Osaka’s ATC building."
