RoboCup creation walks amateur robotics into the big leagues

With all the amazing robots the event has delivered in the past, it's sometimes difficult to remember that the RoboCup is display of "amateur" robots, which makes the CHARLI robot all the more amazing.

Developed by a team of students utilizing the resources and collective brain power of RoMeLa (the Robotics & Mechanisms Laboratory), the humanoid CHARLI robot combines the ability to walk at 300 millimeters a second with a surprisingly polished design exterior. You can see the CHARLI (slated to compete in the 2011 RoboCup next month) going for a test stroll in the video below.
