Run For The Hills: A Ball-Catching Robot
Hit him in the eyes!
...the robot is able to position itself within two centimeters of where it needs to be in a time window of only five milliseconds, which yields an impressive catch rate of better than 80 percent.
Admittedly, that's a pretty impressive catch rate. I'm probably more around 50%. Less than 10% with just my right hand. *dirty look* You're not even good at the mouse buttons!

Thanks to DONLAN, who agrees it should only be catching balls in its mouth.
