Entering UCI engineering students designed, built, and tested RC controlled soccerbots. They competed three on three at the end of the Fall 2010 quarter. This video may be a little over the top, but it does capture the fun.
I am pleased to say that the second edition of my book, Geometric Design of Linkages, is now available, and I have to express my sincere gratitude to my co-author GimSong Soh, who helped make it happen.
You can find more information at the Springer Verlag web-page, GDL on Springer.com.
It is also already on Google Books, you can see it at the link GDL on books.google.com.
