Nedney Shows Up Robotic Kicker

Last weekend, San Francisco Niner kicker Joe Nedney was pitted against Ziggy, a 340 lb. titanium robot, to promote the Robogames. During practice, the kickbot managed to send the ball 60 yards, but that was on cement. When the time came to perform, Nedney managed to send the football 45 yards while Ziggy failed in both of his attempts. Domination of human over robot is still intact, at least on the football field.
