Visitors tried to keep the Quattro from placing and sorting on a small mechanized platform by moving it using the Nintendo video controller. The bottom line is that when it comes to simplified and repetitive tasks there's really no beating robotic prowess."
It was kinda like stuffing the wrong card in a computer, when you're
stickin' those artificial stimulants in your arm.
