Robot Hand Cheats at Rock, Paper, Scissors

Ishakawa Oku's physics lab at the University of Tokyo built a robot that plays Rock, Paper, Scissors and never loses. It can do this because there is a high-speed camera in the room that captures and analyzes the competitor's wrist angle so it knows the next move. It takes one millisecond to do that, much faster than a human can. The team believes it to be a learning tool that can be used in the area of cooperation between the two species. Before that day comes, maybe it can be taught the much cooler Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock.
