Scientists create a baseball-playing robot
But Mike Trout already exists!
Jokes aside, this is a very interesting article from Wired. Researchers at the University of Electro-Communications in Tokyo and the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology have created a robot that adapts to pitches using software which mimics the function of the human brain’s 100,000 neurons.
The robot already has better plate discipline than Delmon Young.
I, for one, welcome our baseball-playing robot overlords.
