A Japan's Rock-Paper-Scissors Robot Wins Every Time

By Ben on Fri Nov 8 2013 |
Gear | Video
A robot developed by Japanese scientists is so fast it can "win" the rock-paper-scissors game against a human every single time.
How? It cheats. From the BBC:
"It uses high-speed recognition and reaction, rather than prediction.
Technically, the robot cheats because it reacts extremely quickly to what the human hand is doing rather than making a premeditated simultaneous action as the rules state.
Taking just one millisecond (ms) - a thousandth of a second - to recognise what shape the human hand is making, it then chooses a winning move and reacts at high speed.
Version one completed its shape 20ms after the human hand; version two finishes almost simultaneously."

Watch this beautiful 2-minute video, and please share it with your family and friends.

LoLo Bunk Bed
Home | Furniture
The LoLo Bunk Bed is a compact solution for smaller spaces or lower ceilings. Conveniently, the bunk beds are detachable creating two almost identical twin beds. When stacked, the lower bunk offers an enclosed "space" which will easily double as a private reading nook or a theatre stage for impromptu performances. The top bunk offers a built in side rail for added safety. Once converted into twin beds, each bed can have a trundle bed or three drawers underneath (sold separately). A detachable hanging tray (also ordered separately) functions as a nightstand wherever needed.
