Default wins a round
Editors note: Default is the strongest bot in the group. In an exhibition match he demonstrated the ability to take out Robor in a head to head pushing match. Unfortunatly he has no means to sense his opponents and roams the ring blind in hopes of hitting something.

Calvin with two Aibo robot dogs
In other non-sumo related activity, a frustrated Calvin attempts unsuccessfully to get a couple of Sony Aibo robot dogs to mate, no wait, "play" with each other. They were also not interested in sumo competition (not enough traction I presume).
