Rock, Paper, Scissors has long been the decision maker for many an indecisive pair or group. Whether it’s a single game or best out of 13, we all seem to agree it’s a fair and fun way to determine a winner (unless you’ve got a cheater).
Well, no more. The fun has officially been sucked out of it. The game is no longer fun when you have no chance of winning. The Janken robot (courtesy of Japanese scientists) is unbeatable.
What purpose could a Rock, Paper, Scissors champion robot serve? Well, I’m sure there are thousands of applications for a robot with lightning quick reflexes (such as world domination), right now, I’m calling it out—cheater!
The robot’s unbeatable strategy disgards logic and chance for waiting to see what its opponent’s move is first.
Brush it off as a cute little trick now, but you won’t be smiling when your new robot leaders seem to be just one millisecond ahead of you.
