Literally, they’re off. Children in the Middle Eastern Country of Quatar have been exploited as camel jockeys in camel races for far too long. Children have had stories of being sold or abducted and forced into the grueling life of a camel jockey. Some of the children are as young as 4 years of age.
An unmasked hero (un-named Swiss company) has swooped in and saved the day for everyone. Robots will take the place of the children jockeys.
A recent Quatar law bans the participation of any child under the age of 16 years and under the weight of 45 kilograms [99.2 lbs] in response to United Nation’s request.
I wonder if they will let the children remote control the robots? Regardless this story provides dual happiness for me:
Children aren’t abducted and starved for entertainment and gambling purposes. The sight of a robot riding a camel… you understand.
