Rovio Learns Soccer, Bends it Like Beckham

We all knew the Rovio was a master surveillance and spy robot, but a "footballer" too?  Yes, it's true, Rovio is on his way to becoming a star athlete, thanks to these students at NYU.

The Rovio's aren't doing this on their own, though, these whiz kids have programmed software that allows the Rovio to recognize the yellow ball and figure out the best way to push it into the red goal they've set up.  There's a ton of videos and pics up on their dedicated project page, why don't you have a look at the next robotic Pele?
