There's A Robot For That!

I am often surprised to find that "there's an app for that" - usually something that seems trivial on non-mainstream, but that someone has taken the time to write software to address it. We may be starting to push beyond that, and perhaps will soon catch ourselves saying "there's a robot for that". Disney (yes, The Mouse House) has put their animatronic experience together with some robotic learning capability and come up with a robot that can play catch. With typical Disney flair, the robot will also go through a few little bits of business if it misses a catch, such as looking around for the ball or shrugging it's "shoulders".
