MaruBot Table Soccer Uses RC Robots Instead Of Plastic Men Impaled On Steel Rods

While this MaruBot Football League game is probably going to be referred to as a “modern take on foosball” they’re really two different beasts. Instead of plastic players being spun on sliding rods, MaruBot uses 4 robots, 2 per team, that are controlled by individual joysticks manned by 4 different players. Of course the goal of each game is exactly the same, to get the ball into the net, but MaruBot requires different different teamwork and gameplay strategies than foosball does. For the moment it appears to be only available in Korea, so here’s to hoping it makes its way to North America one day.
