Why no one can score against the unbeatable RoboKeeper

Why no one can score against the unbeatable RoboKeeper
As the world cup kicked off in Moscow on June 14th,  the German team failed to notice they were short one player, a world-class goalie. Neymar couldn’t beat him, Ronaldo failed, but the German keeper would not have conformed with the rules - it is a robot. Called ‘RoboKeeper’, the computer-controlled football machine is a development of the Fraunhofer-Institut für Materialfluss und Logistik (IML). Back in 2006, when Germany was in the thralls of its own home world cup, Dipl.-Ing. Thomas Albrecht and his team of scientists set about to develop RoboKeeper.
