Two athletes play a game of Rock, Scissors, Paper in Brisbane, Australia. Thanks to a new robot, the game could soon get a whole lot less fair. - 

Researchers in Japan have developed a robot that's function is to beat humans at Rock Paper Scissors. It does so every single time. 100 percent.

How, you might ask?

Well, the robot has sensors that monitor your hand's movement so quickly that it can react within a millisecond and beat you.

In other words, the future of robotics is... cheating.
