Here it is: A beer pong playing robot.

Developed by Empire Robotics, it’s called Versaball, and this cute little arm will be slinging ping pongs into cups at CES next week. You can play the robot there, but here’s some fair warning: It never misses. Like ever.

And while beer pong is all fine and dandy, Versaball’s real-world applications include: “gripping porous and delicate parts, eliminating pinch points and minimizing tool change downtime,” making it a potentially handy tool in lab or construction-site scenarios.

Can’t get enough ping pong? Be sure to remember GeekWire’s ping pong tourney coming up in March, which also includes beer pong.
