This Robot Can Beat You in Beer Pong

Published On 01/07/2015 Published On 01/07/2015

We've already told you the seven secrets to absolutely destroying in beer pong, but there's still one obstacle you have to overcome in your quest for sheer dominance: you're a mere human, you doofus. You see, that's one issue the Versaball robot by Empire Robotics doesn't have, and it's using its cold, (literally) calculating programming to become the best beer pong player ever. Even better than Jeff.

Check out this video where the Versaball demonstrates how it would totally crush you and the rest of humanity... in that beer pong tournament:

As you can probably tell (you're a robotics expert... right?), the Versaball works by inflating a green sand-filled ball, forming it around the object being picked up, and then deflating it so that the object is "gripped." Then, it can launch the beer pong ball in question and sink it into pretty much all the cups ever. It can also pick up other stuff, but... c'mon. Beer pong.

Sorry, Jeff. Looks like we're choosing Versaball as our partner for the next tournament.
