Toyota Basketball Robot
Toyota’s CUE 3 robot that stands six foot 10-inch (2.1m) tall has set a Guinness World Record by shooting 2,020 free throws consecutively. How does it work? It generates a three-dimensional image of where the basket is using sensors on its torso and then adjusts the motors inside its arm and knees to give the shot the right angle and propulsion for a perfect shot each time.



Cue 3’s name basically reflects the idea that technology can serve as a cue, or signal of great things to come. Yudai Baba, a basketball player likely representing host Japan at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, took part in the demonstration, but missed a couple of shots. If the robot could learn a few more tricks, Baba was ready to welcome the robot on the team.
