Robot Space Combat!

Maybe the coolest headline ever. All this from Daily Wireless:

"New Scientist reports that Japanese robotic game organizers plan to take their event into space. A satellite carrying several small humanoid robots is planned to be launched into space in October 2010. It will release humanoid robots, who will then proceed to fight each other in the vacuum of space.

A tardy April Fools joke? Apparently not.

Organizers of Robo-One, a robot combat event held annually in Tokyo, announced plans for their space combat mission this week. Robo-One is a robot combat event. Robots.net and DefenseTech have more.

The announcement was actually made during the Robo-One 9 competition here in Tokyo on March 19th - long before April Fool's day.
