Oh look! A robot that can bat a baseball. Now I don't have to worry about the players taking steroids! Unfortunatelt, the robot, which was built by Robocross.de, can only bat a baseball as far as the pitchers mound. Don't worry though, better baseball batting robots will soon be on their way.

Implications - The advancement of technology has allowed scientists to build robots that may potentially replace humans. Robotics have been essential in conducting certain tasks that humans normally can't complete. Businesses should try to develop robots that will help finish chores or assist the disabled or elderly. That way, instead of replacing humans, robots can assist them to ensure an easier lifestyle.
