Japanese researchers from the Ishikawa Oku Lab at the University of Tokyo have created a robot which they have called the "human-machine cooperation system." This robot is a winning creation which can always beat the humans at rock paper scissors.
This robot has a high-speed camera which can recognize the shape of your hand in just a millisecond before it plays its winning hand.
The research is an example of how a robot can react to human motion within a few milliseconds. This robot may herald a future generation of robots which will be capable of interacting with humans without the need for instructions.
