Robots skiing, what an amazing time to be alive.

THE ROBOLYMPICS — Olympic fever has swept over the world, and people from every nation are watching the planet's best athletes compete for gold and glory.

But while us humans are enjoying snowboarding and ice skating, the robot world is trying its hand at skiing.

This video from Pyeongchang gives us a glimpse into the 2018 Ski Robot Challenge where brilliant minds craft robots that will take on a downhill course. As you can see in the video, some robots are more successful than others. And apparently, some get colder than others and also require coats and jackets.

This video shows the ingenuity and resourcefulness of our modern society and the great minds in it. The description on YouTube for this video reads: "Robots ski downhill in the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic Winter Games showing off some of the latest in downhill skill robotic technology."

And I'm so happy we have this video so we can all see the amazing advances in what is no doubt the most important work of our generation and likely generations to come; downhill skill robotic technology. It feels like something can finally fill the void the Bud Bowl left us when it tragically stopped being played in 1997.

Thank you, downhill robotic ski experts, we now have a sport and competition we can all be proud of yet again.
