Robots play American football (and suck at it)
Robot American Football)
Every year, between the months of February and August, there’s a feeling of emptiness that falls over me, and I know I’m not the only one who feels this way. American football fans know this to be the period of time when there is no college or NFL games, and when we turn into sad lots, feeling cold and alone on weekends and Monday nights.
So imagine my delight when I stumbled across this story about robots playing American football–two of my favorite things combined into one. Score, right? Well, sort of. Unfortunately, the game barely resembles American football, and the robots suck at it.
