Another Breakthrough in Rock, Paper Scissors

Posted 20 Feb 2009 at 21:53 UTC by steve Share This

In 2006 we reported on a robotic hand that formed rock, paper, scissors gestures by reading a human subject's mind via an MRI scanner. Now your mind-reading robot hand has a real robot to play against. BERTI is a robot developed by British researchers at the Bristol Robotics Lab working on human gesturing. BERTI is a torso with 36 degrees of freedom including 9 DoF in each hand. The researchers recently demonstrated the robot at the London Science Museum, where it played Rock, Paper, Scissors to show off its dexterity. For more on BERTI, see the BRL website.
