Default Uniform electronic strike zone?

I've got to believe that the technology exists (or is damn close to existing) that would allow for a 100% accurate strike zone.

If such is the case, why not go with it?

Understand that I am against instant replay in football and generally champion the "human element" being present in sports, but you might be able to convince me that an electronic strike zone would be good for MLB.

Will somebody please explain to me how the strike zone can vay from umpire to umpire?
Isn't the rulebook clear cut as to what body parts are within the range of the strike zone?

Why not cut all the BS and call a ball a ball and a strike a strike with ZERO room for argument over it?

The NFL is so fond of telling us that it is important to "get the call right".......uhh........RIGHT?
