A robot constructed by a group of Detroit high school trainees will toss out the initial pitch at the Detroit Tigers' Wednesday online game against the Toronto Blue Jays.

CBS Detroit reports the team of concerning 30 teens invested the summer season developing the robot, dubbed "Cy-ber Youthful."

"It's a robotic made to throw away the pitch. It has to do with the dimension of a buying cart and also makes use of a huge diving tank as the major resource of power," Colm Boren, a official site developer and also mentor for the FIRST Robotics company informs CBS Detroit. "So, we use that as basically a large pea shooter to blow the round with an item of PVC pipeline. There's an electronic camera that's used as well as the robotic actually takes a trip bent on the pile on its own."



The trainee could steer the robot with joystick controllers like the ones used for a computer game and have a laptop computer. Boren claims the pupils have the ability to manipulate setups such as speed as well as trajectory of the ball.



"We've clocked it at upwards of 85 miles per hour," Boren informs CBS Detroit. "We could probably go a bit higher so it's absolutely greater than the ordinary person can throw, however not as high as an expert baseball gamer."

"Cy-ber Young" will be the very first student-built robot in history to throw away the first pitch at a Big league Baseball game.
