Cheater: Robot Hand Never Loses At Rock-Paper-Scissors

September 16, 2015


This is a robotic hand created by the folks at the University of Tokyo's Ishikawa Oku Lab that never loses at rock-paper-scissors. How? By reading your hand then responding with the winning gesture in less than a millisecond. Whatever, I could still beat it. Ready? One, two, three, shoot! Dang, he got me. Best two out of three. *lops all robot's fingers off with bolt-cutters* Haha -- now he's always rock! Ready? One, two, three, shoot! "Dammit GW, you picked scissors." Man, he's GOOD.

Hit the jump for a video demo of the we should just choose straws anyways.

Thanks to Inspector G, LostBoyGoonie, Bachmann and Matt, who agree the best way to win at paper-rock-scissors is to always choose dynamite.

  • So what happens when you put 2 of them against each other?

    My country i better than your country.

    My army is more powerful than your army.

    My technology is more advanced then your technology.Let's try and I'll show you...Ready?rock,paper,scissor...Ehi,wait...Why it isn't working?I paid scientists billion to accomplish that.I even abandoned the nuclear thing.

    Do you have one of that,too?

    Ok,I think we can spare equally the rest of the world.

  • That's cheating! You're supposed to do it at the same time - not a millisecond after!

    But how does it do at Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock?

  • Who stares at the other person's hand while doing this? RPS... i thought was a game of chance rather that a game of "Watch what they do and use the winning move".

  • cbutters

    I think the point is that even if you did stare at the other person's hand, you wouldn't be quick enough to pull it off

  • All that technology and the thing squeaks?!

  • $18922249

    The fuck you say...

  • I hope the fate of humanity is not decided by a Rock-Paper-Scissors game!
