Robochamps - Microsoft goes robot competition

Has anyone visited RoboChamps already, Microsoft's new (?) web site for robot competitions (and for promoting its Robotics Studio in the end).
Looks quite professional and entertaining.

Note: the site requires Silverlight, Microsoft's competitor to Flash.
As for me, my Firefox browser regularly crashes after a while since I've installed Silverlight. Hrmpfh!

Somebody needs to explain to those two gentleman that what they are remotely controlling/driving is not a robot... it's a remote control car.

The virtual Mars Rover project looks very interesting... no robot required. Same for the Urban Challenge.
