Bowling machine no match for humankind

Bowling machine Harry

Nice try, there, "Harry" (if that is your real name), but don't quit your day job yet. In the first ever contest to pit human versus machine in heated bowling combat, Danny Wiseman of Baltimore solidly trounced "Harry" the ball-thrower at the United States Bowling Congress Research and Testing Facility (do our tax dollars pay for these things?). In a race to five strikes, Wiseman was five for five while poor Harry only struck once out of its five attempts. Developed by USBC engineers primarily for testing new equipment, the bowling machine had its chance to shine during its 15 minutes of fame… and blew it. At least it's good to know that we can take our robotic overlords at something, anyway.
