The Singularity has arrived! Or at least, a robotic hand that can beat you at Rock, Paper, Scissors every time. Next up: THE SINGULARITY!
I was impressed with the robot until I discovered it only works for American Rules SPS.
In the UK you make the gesture behind your back then reveal, so – unless it has a setting to handle not recognising the opponent’s micromotions – it would lose every game by default.
RPS has different rules in different countries? D:
And different names, some of which are used for something very different in another country. For example, Roshambo is RPS in some countries but alternating kicks to the genitals until one person collapses in others.
I envision the president, in the Situation Room, looking around the table at his closest advisors and saying somberly, “Gentlemen, we have lost rock-paper-scissors superiorirty. What are our options?” Somebody will then propose that a massive program be undertaken to immediately train every citizen in the United States to follow British R-P-S rules. (The president will want to include illegal immigrants, but the Congress will nix that part.)
