Robot Sets Record for iPhone Game

March 11, 2011 Leave a comment

Cool video of a robot programmed to play the iPhone game “1to50” I saw via Popular Science.

The object is to simply press the numbers from 1 to 50 in the correct order as fast as you can.

The robot [the Adept Quattro] managed to do it in 6.67 seconds, which is roughly 7.5 numbers pressed per second.

The game is available for free, so I tried it myself. After 3 attempts my fastest time was 51 seconds. I am ashamed.

 

A PLAYABLE ‘Angry Birds’ Birthday Cake!

For those who don’t know, ‘Angry Birds‘ is a very popular (and addictive!) game for smartphones.

The premise is simple: fling birds (who are angry) out of a slingshot to knock over structures and kill the green pigs.

This lucky young man got an Angry Birds cake for his birthday. Awesome!
