Ever wanted to see a Sony Aibo playing soccer?  Me neither.  However, it seems there is a project called RoboCup that has just that as one of its goals:

"By mid-21st century, a team of fully autonomous humanoid robot soccer players shall win the soccer game, comply with the official rule of the FIFA, against the winner of the most recent World Cup."

Its primary purpose is to push the state-of-the-art in artificial intelligence, building robots that are capable of functioning as a team independent of human supervision.
