In this paper, we seek directions in which the robot may evolve by first taking into consideration the distribution of human labor and labor power from a historical point of view and showing that it will be necessary to promote intelligent sport with physical sport. Then we show that the most suitable example of such intelligent sport is considered robot manufacturing competition in which participants compete in creating robots. Finally, we take up the Robot Grand Prix we organized as such an intelligent sport, and discuss methodology for holding this competition.
