Robots Learn How to Play Catch With Soulless, Mechanical Precision

Last year, the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics at the German Aerospace Center created the "Rollin' Justin" robot, a technical marvel that could catch a ball through a mix of precision, user input, and motion sensors. Huffington Post relayed video footage of the two robots in action, as each unit showed off their respective skills in a short game of catch. Luckily, Justin and Justin aren't equipped with any degree of artificial intelligence, because they could easily be throwing lethal objects through the air at unsuspecting humans. Either way, it seems like the next logical step will be a third "Justin" robot that can pitch catch a ball in one fluid motion.
