Scenes from the last day of the FIRST in Hawaii Regional Robotics Competition. Students from schools across the state and the country gathered at the Stan Sheriff Center at the University of Hawaii to show off their math, science, and engineering skills in the form of ball playing robots. FIRST was founded by inventor and entrepreneur Dean Kamen, who was in Honolulu for the event.

The winning alliance included the Rambots from Radford High School, The Cheesy Poofs from Bellarmine College Prep High School (California), and The Pink Team from Rockledge High, Cocoa Beach High, and Viera High Schools (Florida).

The above is the embedded video player from Vimeo, one of the few online video hosts to serve up HD content. To see the HD video (and not a scaled and compressed Flash version), however, you need to view it at Vimeo or download the original movie file (128MB/1250x720/MP4). It should look great on an Apple TV.

You can also watch this video via low quality but fast loading Flash players at YouTube, Google Video, Yahoo! Video, Viddler, and Blip TV. And several versions of this video (including high-definition MPEG-4 and DivX) can be downloaded from the Internet Archive.
