Default This Robot should throw a disc

Wonder if this mechanical beast could throw a disc? If so it would be a lot less scary.

Seriously, though, for an even freakier effect, they could give this thing a skin like an animal. Maybe Sarah Jessica Parker's body with Garey Busey's face.

It would definitely be less scary throwing discs. Maybe one of their engineers plays a little dg.

That would be cool. I'd let it play on my card but it would have to carry everyone's bag. And a built-in cooler is a must. Oh and it must go into ponds and ditches for discs.

That would be an improvement. Well, maybe not the teeth.

Discraft and Innova must own their own throwing robots right? One with an arm design that mimics a disc golfer? If they don't then how do they ever expect to perfect a mold without a controlled way of testing them?
