WATCH: The Robot That Will Beat You at Beer Pong

Empire Robotics’ Versaball robot has been hailed for its ability to grip a multitude of objects in a unique way: by using a giant inflatable sand-filled ball attached to a robot arm. The applications are practically limitless…which is why Empire Robotics has programmed the robot to be a beer pong phenom.
