Another Step Towards Our Robotic Doom

Posted By on Thu, Jun 28, 2012 at 4:00 PM

Great, another day, another Japanese robot designed with a new skill in mind. Now, the Ishikawa Oku Laboratory has built a robotic hand that wins every single game of Rock, Scissors, Paper. Thankfully, the robot isn't capable of reading minds (yet), but instead is programmed to look for minute changes in the human hand to quickly react with the winning gesture. While I'm not sure exactly how this will help dominate the human race in the near future, we won't be able to trick the robots with Rock, Scissors, Paper at very least. One fewer tool at our disposal, I guess.
