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.
