    Even if it waits a millisecond after the human starts to throw theirs, it's cheating. You aren't supposed to look at the other person's hand.

    They acknowledge that in the article, it's just that the technology is amazing for being able to interpret the hand in a millisecond and react in another, so to the eye there is no cheating. It means that it can't REALLY beat you in rock/paper/scissors by cheating, but it might in a boxing match.

    Edit to add: Can they oil that fucking thing?

    Bullshit, that's part of the game. Reading the body language of your opponent is essential.

    I could beat it. Just go with rock every time. Good old rock, nothing beats that.

    It's a robot. Even if it lost, it would hunt you down and kill you. Winner
