The point that was being made is that technology is getting more and more accurate all the time. Every year the excuses for not using the technology get weaker and weaker.
As others have said, detecting whether or not a pitch is a ball or a strike is really rather easy by modern technological standards. Tech companies are routinely doing far more difficult measurements throughout many industries.
The technology is available if the leadership of MLB chooses to implement it. I think they will eventually, likely soon.
Just as soon as the Yankees get a few bad strike calls in the World Series.
