Robot Hand Beats You at Rock, Paper, Scissors 100% Of The Time
This robot hand will play a game of rock, paper, scissors with you.
Sounds like fun, right? Not so much, because this particular robot
wins every. Single. Time.
Here's a hint about what makes this robot (from the Ishikawa Oku Lab at
the University of Toyko) so unbeatable: it's one of those high speed hands that works with a high speed vision system. And when we say 'high speed,' we mean fast enough that you can't really tell that the robot is cheating:
It only takes a single millisecond for the robot to recognize what
shape your hand is in, and just a few more for it to make the shape that
beats you, but it all happens so fast that it's more or less impossible
to tell that the robot is waiting until you commit yourself before it
makes its move, allowing it to win 100% of the time. You might be
thinking that you could fool the system by changing your mind halfway
through, but my guess is that the hand and vision system are faster than
your reflexes could ever be, and that it would be trivial for the robot
to adapt to any creative moves that happens on the human end.
Yep, score another one for the robots.
