Competition for Useless Robots
Every year Japan puts on the Bacarobo, a contest for
stupid mentally challenged robots. This is not to say they are inferior to others, only that they must be useless to society to win the competition. No robots that can detonate bombs, shoot down the enemy or feed your grandmother will be found here. The winner turned out to be YKRN, a robot that scanned faces and leaned towards the ones it liked. If you happen to meet one of the contestants, don't tell it that they is useless or it may gang up your pets and small babies.
