One-Armed Robotic Juggler

A team at Japan's Chiba University has built a robot arm that can juggle 2 balls. Because it has no shoulder it can only do about 5 repetitions at a time but anyone who has learned the skill will know that the balls have to be watched in the air like this bot does. Then calculations are made with each cycle. The purpose of their experiment is to display "skillful and dynamic human-like motion."
