This robot from Japan always wins at Rock, Paper, Scissors

Rock, Paper, Scissors Robot

Sometimes a simple game of Rock, Paper, Scissors is the best way to settle things. But how can you compete against a machine with high-speed vision, hand shape recognition, and high-speed robotic hand?

This robot, developed by the Ishikawa Oku Laboratory at Japan’s University of Tokyo, never loses at the classic game of chance. Why? Because the f*cking robot cheats. It is so fast that it is able to make its move after knowing yours – but it happens so quick that you wouldn’t notice except when shown in slow-motion.

Check out the video below and see for yourself.
