A company called Robot Services Group is running i-SOBOT soccer matches over the Internet. Using free video conferencing software called ooVoo, you control one i-SOBOT against an opponent’s bot on a soccer field.

Another cool service the company provides is a robot test drive, where you can try controlling various mini-humanoid type bots. This might be a good way to get your feet wet if you’re planning on investing in one of the more expensive robots in this class.
