Have you ever found yourself watching a sports game (pick one, any one), and yes, you’re enjoying it, but there’s something missing. Is that something robots? If your answer is yes, then wow, you have come to the right blog.
Also, you and the prime minister of Japan should have a chat, something tells me you’d get along famously. As they prepare to host the 2020 Olympic Games, Japan’s head of state is teasing the global community with promises of a much stronger robotic presence at the 2020 games.
Because, if I’ve said it once, I’ve said it never, there just aren’t enough robots in human athletic competitions.
Don’t worry, they won’t be competing alongside humans (yet), but there are serious efforts being made to include a Robot Olympics as a part of the Games.
I’m sure this goes without saying, but I’m going to say it anyways: this is how the end begins. Our descendants will mark the 2020 Games as the beginning of the reign of our robotic overlords. It’s a slippery slope, Japan. You know what they say, teach a robot track and field, and next they’ll want to rule the world.
