Robotic arm plays beer pong

I went through the Internet and I stumbled across a short clip of robot playing beer pong. Basically someone programmed a robotic arm to toss a ping pong ball into a cup. Although it seems simple, building and programming a robot takes a lot of work.

This is the beginning. I imagine that in 5-10 years we’ll probably have full-bodied robots in beer pong competitions.

The video is 15 seconds long. Give it a watch.
