CUE, the first version of the robot, was developed by Toyota in 2018, according to the company’s website. The first version of the robot took three minutes to restart between takes.
Toyota later developed CUE2, which was unveiled at the game’s halftime show in November 2018, and scored a three-point throw, according to the website. The third version, CUE3, set a Guinness World Record in 2019 for the “most frequent basketball free throws in a row by a humanoid robot”.
