PhillieBot Robot Gives First Pitch at a Phillies Game
PhillieBot, designed by the University of Pennsylvania, gives the first pitch at a Phillies game, pitching to the Phillie Phanatic. Unfortunately, the Phillie Phanatic apparently broke its wrist catching a pitch last year. This time, at the last minute, the robot's engineers were told to turn the pitching arm's power down, so as not to hurt the Phanatic again. This robot has the potential to throw a ball at very high speeds, if the settings were set to allow for it.
