You Can't Win At Rock, Paper, Scissors

This is pretty stu­pid, but sci­en­tists at the Uni­ver­sity of Tokyo wanted to cre­ate a robot to demon­strate human-machine coop­er­a­tion sys­tems … what­ever that means.

So they built a robotic hand that plays rock-paper-scissors with you … and wins EVERY TIME.

The robot has high-speed vision that can detect human hand shapes and move­ments, and can make super-fast deci­sions about what to throw … rock, paper, or scissors.
