Rollin' Justin Multitasks

If you are old enough to remember Peggy Lee's "I'm a woman, W-O-M-A-N" it looks like Rollin' Justin is in competition as he can catch up to 2 random balls in the a.m. and whip up some coffee in the p.m. Controlled with an iPad, his catch rate is about 80% as he notes the ball's direction and trajectory with cameras and software. The Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics has precision grasping that ensures that his hand is in the right place at the right time. Justin can handle a hardball as well as a lightweight paper cup when making coffee with a pre-packaged machine.
