Robots take to the slopes on sidelines of Winter Games

DUNNAE, South Korea (Reuters) – While Alpine skiers fought high winds at the Pyeongchang Games on Monday, there were no such problems for robots competing in their own “Olympics” ski challenge.

Robots of all shapes and sizes skied, and in some cases tumbled, down a course at the Welli Hilli ski resort, an hour’s drive west of Pyeongchang.

Eight robotics teams from universities, institutes and a private company competed for a $10,000 prize in the Ski Robot Challenge.

“I heard the Alpine skiing has been postponed again due to wind conditions. That’s a pity,” said Lee Sok-min, a member of the winning TAEKWAN-V team.

“Robots are doing fine here,” he said.

Unfair!  They have a ridiculously low center of gravity and don't suffer the slightest bit from the cold :P
