Sounds good. Now they won't use 4-year olds as jockeys. (Provided the robot works.)

If you've ever read the prequals to the dune series, this'll make you very nervous... Robots! On camels! THEY'LL ENSLAVE US ALL!!

Whoops, got carried away... *laughs meekly*

Activists say there are about 40,000 boy jockeys, some as young as 4, who are either bought from their parents or kidnapped from their home countries and taken to the Gulf to ride.
WTF?

Well, what'll happen to them now?

Heard of this in da Swamp. That's a good idea, actually. Camel racing with 4-year olds is as good as podracing with non-functional droids. Or something close to that.

Whatever the case, the Middle-East area will always be a little weird in my opinion.

Don't forget to read the six other aside from the prequals.

Weren't those called "thumpers"?

The thumpers weren't weapons. They were devices to attract the sandworms to a certain area.
