Researchers at the University of Tokyo have created a new robot that plays Rock-paper-scissors and wins every time. Of course, the robot’s cheating. It uses a high-speed camera to recognize the human’s play, and then chooses a counter and forms that shape almost instantaneously using a high-speed motor. While humans take about 60ms to form the shape of rock, paper, or scissors, version two of the robot can do it in just 20ms. Previously, we wrote about the first version of the unbeatable Rock-paper-scissors robot.
