Ball Machine: The Inside Story of the Lies, Seductions and Sporting Triumphs of the Android Vitas Rodriguez


Can an android win Wimbledon? Or the soccer World Cup? What about the heart of a beautiful woman?

When Rosa Rodriguez joins an elite science project in the Arizona desert there’s only one thing missing from her life: a decent tennis partner. So she gets the guys to build her an android – Vitas, the robot who plays to win. 

Whether it’s tennis, football, or making love to beautiful Russian starlets, Vitas is a true ‘ball machine’ – relentless, untiring, and highly skilled.

And when pushed to the limit, will Vitas finally shatter his programming and quantify – to the final decimal point – the ultimate, non-binary meaning of life?
