Robot Wins RPS 100% of the Time

"Robot Hand Beats You at Rock, Paper, Scissors 100% Of The Time"

Key: The robotic hand is tied to a visual detector. Here's the video, including slow-motion.

Hence, "[i]t only takes a single millisecond for the robot to recognize what shape your hand is in, and just a few more for it to make the shape that beats you, but it all happens so fast that it's more or less impossible to tell that the robot is waiting until you commit yourself before it makes its move, allowing it to win 100% of the time."

All together now: "I, for one, welcome our robotic rock-paper-scissors overlords!"
