In the ultimate advanced technology of Japan, nothing seems impossible. In fact, Japan has successfully set up the long-standing record of cutting-edge robot technology and sports achievements. In 2005, there existed the first robot football World Cup in Nagoya. The same event was held again in 2005 in Osaka. In these current days, people are expecting the first marathon for robots in the world named Robo Mara Full.
The Robo Mara Full is held in Osaka, Japan and organized by the Japanese robot maker Vstone and local government officials. The Western Japanese city of Osaka has been well – known as its economy based on heavy industry and now turns into a center of robot innovation.
Robo Mara Full event in Osaka gathers a number of only two-legged robots which are five battery-charged and measured between 30cm and 44cm in height. The sporting spectacle takes place in a room in Osaka\'s Asia-Pacific trade centre. To test the machines\' durability and maneuverability, all contestants must take part in a 26.2-mile marathon course in 423 circuits around the room. Some of the robots are autonomous while others come to be remote-controlled. The machines will be allowed to be charged or repaired if needed. However, they have to get up themselves if they fall over.
The event kicks off on February 24 and finishes on Sunday the 27th. If you have chance to travel to Osaka, you can watch the competition live via robot-maker Vstone\'s Ustream channel.
