Rollin’ Justin Robot Can Play Catch

Need someone to play catch with? Look no further than Rollin’ Justin. This robot by DLR uses “stereoscopic cameras and advanced computer-vision software [to] track a flying ball through the air then position his hands to within 2 centimeters of the ball’s landing zone in as little as 5 milliseconds.” Video after the jump.

His wheeled base doesn’t hurt his 80%+ catch rate either. This means Justin is probably as accurate as you or I when it comes to nabbing balls thrown in the air.
