No, we hadn't forgotten about it. We were just giving the final bots in our Robot World Cup a few weeks to rest their bones (well, mechanical joints) before rejoining battle. And what a battle it is. We're at the semi-final stage, which means the last four robots in the competition. Three of 'em are humanoid: Honda's Asimo, WowWee's Robosapien RS Media, and KornTech's Rogun. The quartet is completed by iRobot's military Packbot, which swaps legs for tank treads.
