VIDEO: Cheating robot always wins rock, paper, scissors

As tough as it might be to find a dependable partner to play rock, paper, scissors on a regular basis, we know better than to trust a robot opponent.

Over in Japan (aka the first place to get destroyed in the inevitable robot war of 2015), clever/meddling types at the Ishikawa Oku Laboratory have created a robot hand that can successfully cheat during games of rock, paper, scissors.

As the video below shows you, it boasts a high-speed camera that analyses the opposing human hand and predicts what will be played based on shape.

It has a perfect record at a) winning rock, paper, scissors and b) draining the fun out of playing it.
