He invented a child-replacing robot camel jockey

In this three-minute video, Rashid Ali Ibrahim does some show-and-tell about his “top secret experiments” to develop a robot jockey to replace camel-racing child jockeys. The robots are now in their seventh year of competition on camelback. Children now are banned from taking jobs as camel jockeys in some (but not all) camel-racing countries.  The video itself is in a sense a robot in competition to win a prize — a prize in a film-making competition.

    As improbable as this invention may have been, the mini-doc is fantastic! I’ve voted for it in its competition– best of luck!
