Robots are here to take our jobs. I repeat, robots are here to take our jobs.
Ok, well not really, but it was damn impressive to watch the robot go back-to-back sinking a three-pointer and a half-court shot without any guidance or assistance even moving up the floor.
The robot was rolled out during the half-time show of the USA – France matchup. It moved quite well on the floor too sinking both shots it took.

Hopefully Team USA was watching its form as they looked absolutely abysmal down the stretch and eventually losing 83-76 to France.
Social media definitely had their own thoughts on the whole situation that went down too!
Not going to lie a robot making a ball from a set distance using a catapult type motion really doesn’t seem super difficult to program with the tech we have these days. Now if this thing had a smooth shooting motion Id be a lot more impressed.

Fun fact: that robot can throw a basketball at 300mph and kill up to five people at once
