Amazing Robot Wins at Rock-Paper-Scissors Every Time

Robot Wins at Rock-Paper-Scissors Every Time
Oku Laboratory

An amazing robot shows remarkable proficiency at rock-paper-scissors by winning the game 100% of the time. So, how does it do it? Simple, it cheats. What, you thought only humans were capable of gaming the system?

Developed by the Oku Laboratory in Japan, the robot uses a high-speed camera to determine the position of its opponent’s hand every millisecond. Then, as its challenger starts to make a gesture, the robot fires off a winning hand in the blink of an eye. The entire process is so fast that humans can’t even perceive it.

Yes, it’s an amazing feat and shows just how quickly robots and vision systems can adapt to human input, but it sort of takes all the fun out of the game, doesn’t it? Still, the next time we find ourselves in a hotly-contested bout of rock-paper-scissors, we want this robot on our side.
