How to cheat using a robot

No, not that kind of cheating.

Researchers at the Ishikawa Oku Laboratory at the University of Tokyo developed a robot that can cheat at the children's game rock-paper-scissors. The robot uses high-speed vision to recognize (in one millisecond) the shape that a human hand is starting to make, and then configures its own hand into a shape that will beat the human 100% of the time.

The lesson here, kids? If you see a robot hanging around the schoolyard offering to play a nice "friendly" game of rock-paper-scissors, maybe for a little bit of money, you should politely decline.
