President Obama Plays Soccer With a Robot in Japan


Well, admittedly, it isn’t much of a game. The robot kicks him the ball and he kicks it back. Sort of a good overall metaphor in a nutshell for diplomatic visits in general, though sometimes it’s other balls that are being kicked.

What strikes me, though, is that this robot looks a whole lot like the one from Robot and Frank. I like to imagine that she and the president will have jewel-heist adventures together.
