Robot Plays Catch and Makes Coffee

Rollin Justin


A new robot, named Rollin' Justin, can perform two important tasks: playing catch and making coffee. The blue and white robot moves on four wheels. DLR, the German Aerospace Center, says its robot has an 80% success rate at catching balls in its two four finger hands. Justin can even catch two balls at once. Notice how Justin never takes its eyes off the ball. That is something coaches are always trying to teach the young kids. If Justin learns to dribble that basketball it is holding in the photo we will be even more impressed. Take a look:
