What other sports could lose the meat sacks? We already have pitching machines for Baseball. Surely some one could invent a Robo Batter? Could a CowBot ride a mechanical bull?

Camel racing.

So, golf might not be too far away.

Have you seen the trailer for Real Steel, the new Hugh Jackman movie about robotic boxers? Other than reminding me a bit of Rock’em Sock’em Robots, it looks kind of cool.
