A group of engineers working for the Japanese company Toyota must have had some extra time one their hands. They created a basketball playing robot that shoots free throws. That is to say, it shoots free throws really, really well. As long as it's wheeled into the exact right place, the robot has nearly 100% accuracy.
The robot doesn't do anything else, but it is very sparkly. That has to count for something, right?

CUE isn't the only robot out their shooting hoops.
