People have raced camels for thousands of years. But in recent decades, the popular desert spectacle has received a 21st century twist: robot jockeys.
The weight of a jockey, obviously, affects the animals’ speeds. In the past, children as young as four years old were used as jockeys in several countries that host camel races. The introduction of robot jockeys is, therefore, not only about camel speed, but also about human rights.
