Pong Robot from Ivo Vos on Vimeo.

This robot uses a standard off the shelf webcam for eyes and solenoids for fingers to play pong. It also has the menacing look of a one-eyed tentacle monster.

Now don’t get me wrong. This is pretty cool, but the thing is just so slow. Maybe it’s just the way the game was programmed, but I’m pretty sure it will beat me just because I will either fall asleep or die before the thing stops. Watch the video and see for yourself.
