Robotic Ballers

By 3rd Way

Some day sports fans might not have to put up with the antics of the Michael Vicks, Brett Favres and Plaxico Buress' of the world. The people at the University of Tokyo are working towards creating robots with skills that can't be matched by a human.

I don't know if it would be more fun to watch a robot dunk from beyond the 3 point line or hit a 1,000 ft home run than it is to watch LeBron's and Prince's best efforts, but I would prefer that the youth of this country strove to emulate computer programmers trying to outwit each other instead of following the examples set by the majority of contemporary professional athletes.
