Ruminations on the electronics industry from David Manners, Senior Components Editor on Electronics Weekly.
Eagles And Chicks
In a world of couch potatoes, it’s too much of a fag to go to a live sporting event so wouldn’t it be nice to be able to chant, swear at the ref, cheer and do Mexican Waves from the comfort of your sofa?
Who else but the Koreans would have had the genius/crazy idea of having robots in the stands which fans can control remotely?
The idea came from a Korean baseball team which is so shit that few people bother to go to its games.
The team, the Hanwha Eagles used to be a good side until 2010 when it started such a slide in performance that’s it’s dubbed Hanwha Chicks.
