Robot Camel Jockey Takes The Place Of Children

Up to a year ago when it was outlawed, Qatar camel racers were using children as jockey’s because of their small frames. Not to mention those poor, poor midgets. Weighing only 57 lbs, this Robotic Camel Jockey is much lighter and more aerodynamic then a human, no matter how much you might use the sandpaper on the midgets head.

Both Oman and the UAE have looked into similar robots to aid child (and midget) welfare. We just hope these robots are well protected from liquid. From what we hear, camels are known to be able to hock quite a loogie. — Andrew Dobrow

  1. I’ll have to say, that the first time that I saw a robot jockey I was completely taken aback. A ROBOT JOCKEY?! It seems like such a better idea than getting small children racing these animals. 🙂
