I know you've probably been wondering for years, "How can we make bowlers even lazier?" It's pretty much impossible, right?
No, not at all. Get a load of this, a robot that'll bowl for you. Man, now that's lazy.
Now, you're probably saying, what in the hell is this thing actually for? It can't be to let fat slobs bowl without moving.
Well, that's true, at least for now. This computerized bowling robot is actually part of a two year study of bowling ball motion and how new technologies can influence and effect lane conditions and scoring in the popular sport.
I know exactly what you're thinking. Technology has had an effect on the sport of bowling? You're kidding, right? No, it's the steroids of bowling apparently, and it must be stopped!
"[United States Bowling Congress] is concerned that technology has overtaken player skill in determining success in the sport of bowling," says Neil Stremmel, USBC technical director. "The ultimate goal of USBC research is to strike a better balance between player skill and technology."That's right people, when the Terminators take over the world, at least we'll be able to hang with them at the bowling lane.
Who's ready to bowl!
