Jennifer: She plays hockey

Meet a robot who can score goals in hockey (she's in Canada, naturally)

From the Toronto Star:

For Canadians, first you crawl, then you walk, then you skate. For scientists, getting robots to walk is really tricky.

So computer science student Chris Iverach-Brereton figured he’d push the envelope even further by programming his robot -- named Jennifer -- to not only skate, but to actually play hockey.

She isn't able to run like a real hockey player, but can glide on her skates. The bot was named after hockey player Jennifer Botterill, an Olympic gold medallist from Manitoba. Watch the video from the Winnipeg Free Press to see Jennifer in action.
