Saudi Arabia developed robot camel jockeys, because too many slave boys were dying! Who ever heard of a robot jockey!
Well, they are commonly used on camels in camel racing as a replacement for human jockeys. They lack legs, but wear the jockey helmet, jersey, and whip. They were developed in 2004 when it was continuously reported that the small children who often are camel jockeys were being abused and some even dying.
Saudi Arabia made it illegal to use slave children as jockeys in 2005. When we say small children, we mean really small. Boys who are only 4 years old are traditionally camel jockeys. They ride and direct the camels in the sport of camel racing. The boys were often starved, so they’d be as lightweight as possible for the races.
It became an active child slave trade to have the child jockeys for camel racing. The kids were either kidnapped or sold by their destitute families into the business. Robot camel jockeys are a much better idea.
