RoboCup side stories: It's coming home!

Guys, we have great news. Yesterday we met a delegation from Leipzig including the Oberbürgermeister (mayor). We don't have photos yet as we were too busy with shaking hands, explaining what the Nao can do and where we are standing right now. The delegation travelled to Brazil to convince the Trustee committee that Leipzig would be a great place for a RoboCup competition. Lyon applied for RoboCup 2016 and tried to convince everyone as well. We also were involved in the preparation with an image film and promo pictures. As far as we know the decision was not easy.

We met everyone later and ... and we did it!!!!

Leipzig will be hosting the RoboCup 2016!!!
