Ball-Catching Robot Will Someday Play Baseball Better Than You

Germany’s aerospace agency, the DLR, has this robot they like to call Rollin’ Justin. Recently they’ve improved his object tracking and tacticle sensors so much that it’s able to catch objects on the fly. It’ll even catch two balls at once!

And not only can it catch 80 per cent of balls thrown at it, but did I mention this thing can make a mean K-Cup of coffee too? I want one. [PlasticPals via Ubergizmo]
