Korean Baseball Team Creates Robot Fans to Sit in Stands

The Hanwha Eagles, a Korean professional baseball team, has created robot fans to digitally cheer up on the home team at its stadium in the city of Daejeon. No, this isn’t some sort of in-joke from Twitter between me and Stephen Douglas. Nope, by all accounts its a real thing and its happening.

Apparently fans can get their faces superimposed over the robots or send messages for the robots to display, which should provide a very significant boost for the Eagles’ players.
