World's tiniest robots

Eco-BeThe brainchild of an engineer at Citizen watches, Eco-Be is powered by a tiny disc-type lithium-ion watch battery, of course. Constructed to compete in a new ultra-small league of the international Robocup soccer competition, this thing clocks in at 1.5 meters a minute - or a brisk stroll if the diminutive Eco-Be were as big as a human. Fast enough to push around a tiny soccer ball, anyway!
