Robots Better At iPhone Video Games Than Humans

This is actually not a bad idea at all. Californian robot-making company Adept Technology has programmed their top-of-the-line Quattro robot to play the iPhone app video game 1to50, a speed test in which the player finds and touches the numbers 1 to 50 arranged randomly on the screen pad. To no one's surprise, the robot quickly set a new record with a time of 6.67 seconds (besting the current human record of 7.85.) Distracting the robots with iPhone video games might give us enough of a window to make a run for it. Here's a video with a wider-angle view, so you can see the whole robot machine. (Don't bother trying to get his attention, though.)

I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords, and offer to hold our human leaders still so that they can be repeatedly poked in the eye by Adept Quattro's NOT AT ALL CREEPY giant blue finger.

Good point. The not-at-all-creepy giant blue robot finger could also be modified into an extremely efficient wet willie machine.

I wonder if Quattro can get me past this insanely hard level of Angry Birds.
