The robot designed by Oku Lab at the University of Tokyo, Japan has a high-speed vision system that beats our mortal synapses and neurons every time.

According to the lab website, the recognition of the human hand ‘can be performed at 1ms with a high-speed vision, and the position and the shape of the human hand is recognised’.

So really the robot is a cheat, watching your finger movements at a high-speed rate and calculating the winning movement.

This millisecond difference marks another defeat for humanity.

So if you find that your mate is beating you every time, take a second look into his eyes for a metallic glow.
