I saw a video of this yesterday.. it sucked.  Created for the drama factor.  The human was running out 10 to 20 feet to make his plays.. but for some reason.. even tho he is supposedly one of the best in the world, he put the ball right back at the robot..that was stuck without being able to move, and had a limited range of less than 5 feet from its position.

albatros183: You racket won't help against a phase-plasma rifle in the 40 watt range.

/Seriously could a plasma gun even exist in the 40 watt range?

Depends. 40 watts could just be the average output (40 j/s). If you were to output 40 j/s average, but only be able to fire for 1 nano second every second (duty cycle of 1e-7%), that means that you're bursting something like 40,000,000,000 joules for 1 ns. Maybe ask XKCD guy if it could be enough to do anything bad and/or create a plasma at STP.

So they have the fastest robot EVAR, and prove it by showing a video entirely in slow motion.
