A Japanese Basketball Team's Secret Weapon

2018-03-14 17:42
Japanese basketball team Alvark Tokyo unveiled a potential secret weapon in the form of a free-throwing robot during an exhibition on Feb. 28. Cue, a robot who has created by Toyota and perfected its skills through artificial intelligence, demonstrated its shooting ability against two human opponents — Seiya Ando and Zack Baranski — who play for Alvark. Over ten shots, Ando and Baranski made eight shots between them, while Cue achieved a perfect score. The “100 percent shooter” will be unveiled to the public on March 28 during the halftime show of an Alvark game. Credit: Alvark Tokyo via Storyful
