  •   Hands have been rarely used in robot soccer competitions, even for goal keepers. In this demo, a humanoid robot called Nao performs punt kicks. The robot approaches the ball, grasps it from the ground using his hands and stands up with the ball in his hands. Then the robot drops the ball and performs a punt kick. The whole procedure is accomplished in about 40 seconds. The ball mores 6 meters away. Our experiments showed almost 100% success rate. The real demonstration won the champion of the SPL Open Challenge at RoboCup China Open 2010, which was held in Ordos, China, July 18-20, 2010.
