The robots' "faces" are screens that display fan faces. The robots also hold LED placards that can display messages sent by these fans vis SMS.

It bears mentioning that the Eagles aren't exactly doing well - "the team has finished last in their league four out of the last five years," according to CTV, "so the seats taken up by the fanbots might be otherwise empty."


The Fanbots are soulless machines, but they sure are enthusiastic. Here they are, rallying the crowd to do the wave.
