    Meet The Unbeatable Robot Goalkeeper

    It is not as if the Germans need any more help winning penalty shoot-outs but they have now gone and built a robot who seemingly cannot be beaten from 12 yards out.

    'RoboKeeper' was developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics in Dortmund and since 2008 has been touring around the country amazing those who fancy themselves from the spot.

    As you can see in the video below, even those with bullet strikes can find no way past this unique goalkeeping talent who cannot be stopped.



    According to the RoboKeeper website:
    "Two cameras recognize the complete ballistic curve of the ball and transmit its position to an image processing computer every 1/50 second."

    "Based on the images from both cameras it defines the three-dimensional position of the ball. The data are then sent to the motor control driving a hightech aircraft gearbox which moves the RoboKeeper to the exact point of impact. This high-performance technology enables the keeper to hold on to any ball."

    Unconfirmed reports from Germany suggest that Arsene Wenger made a bid for Robokeeper but then withdrew it when he found out the robot was already three years old as he feels there is a robot with even more potential currently being developed in the Arsenal youth system.

    RoboKeeper is also believed to be a distant cousin of Yahoo! Eurosport's transfer ticker guru Eurobot.

    True but using also an automated system which works a millions times faster than a human being and expect a human being to use his natural strength without cheating is impossible...,

    But an ability which humans have better than machines is intelligence.., therefore in this case I can say is using ones intelligence (cheating) to better oneself ....

    Sasa lalakini akizidi vipimo au viwango vilivyowekwa au vinavyotakiwa goal liwe watakuwa wao ndio wana cheat, Maana vipimo vya goal ni 7.32m apart X crossbar 2.44 m
