The 2018 begins in PyeongChang, South Korea on Feburary 9th and will be going on until February 25.
As you may recall from previous Olympic games in the USA, the Torch Relay is a big deal. The route is winding and tries to incorporate as much of the host country as possible. The torch for the upcoming Olympics left Greece for South Korea on Oct. 25th and it looks like the route, is not dissimilar from previous Relays wit it’s twists and turns.
As the Torch Relay crisscrosses the host country, the people who get to participate in the relay have to go into a contest to find out who gets the dubious honor…but one stop had something very interesting happen. The runner was not human. HUBO the Robot got to run the torch.
As crazy as that sounds, technology is moving at a quick pace. How long before Robots get to compete in the Olympics?
