America is a pretty technologically advanced society, but it's nothing compared to South Korea. They already have the world's fastest internet, and now they've taught robots to cheer for baseball teams.
The humanoid robots hold LED screens which can be lifted in unison to show messages sent in by fans. You can even send a picture of yourself and have it displayed as the robot's face.
When you think about it, this is sort of like how American broadcasts will feature tweets from fans, just a hundred times creepier.
If this technology makes its way to America, we may finally have a solution to stop NFL blackouts.
