Wow cool achievement but don't people ride camels and horses for fun and transport? Unless... they don't have limo style camels do they?

These camel rider robots are being used now because they outlawed the use of small boys. These are robot jockeys, for racing.

I just made a short film about robot camel jockeys. I started a thread in video, or you can see it here:
