"At important moments, the Fanbot encourages group cheering"

That's the Korean baseball Fanbot, of course. The link describes that headline as "the most creepily utopian baseball-related sequencing of words ever uttered", which is entirely possible (and a good example of how 'utopian' has acquired the meaning of its opposite). But the creepy words that got me to click on the link were "the robots take on the actual faces of absent fans". The link has a short video that explains everything.
