This is what they’re building robots for these days.

Ishikawa Oku Laboratory has built a Rock, Paper, Scissors (Janken) robot with a 100% winning rate. Using a camera with high-speed vision, the robot can respond accordingly within 1ms, beating humans every time.

Using a camera with high-speed vision? That sound like cheating! I hope they mass produce these and one of the robots loses. The scientists are all like, ‘this is not possible’, but then it’s because artificial intelligence kicks in and the robot feels compassion. But everyone believes it to be defective so it’s due to get thrown away. But then, it comes full circle when one of the scientists shows compassion to the robot. Are you crying yet? I had crazy visions, Hollywood needs to holla at me.
