Tokyo's Ishikawa Oku Lab Robot Hand is a RoShamBo Wizard

If you think you are the champion of the childhood game of rock-paper-scissors, then you have obviously never met the Ishikawa Oku Lab Robot Hand -- the droid master of RoShamBo.

Before you have even fully opened your hand the robot can sense, within one millisecond, what move you are going to make based on the motion of your arm. This high-speed decision making process renders the droid capable of putting forth its move before its human opponent has time to finish theirs.

While some may construe this as cheating, given that the robot virtually knows what move you are going to make almost before you do, its rapid ability to process information and be so quick to act is hardly a fault you can complain about -- even when the droid schools you time and time again.
