CUE, the first version of the robot, was developed by Toyota in 2018, according to website. The initial version of the robot needed three minutes to restart between shots.
Toyota then developed CUE2, unveiled at half-time in the game in November 2018, and scored a three-point throw, according to the site. The third version, CUE3, created a Guinness World record in 2019 for the “most consecutive basketball free throws by a humanoid robot”.
It is not known whether CUE2 or CUE3 was running at the Tokyo Olympics. (RELATED: Stripchat Porn Site Gives Olympians Free Content If They Win A Gold Medal)
