Toyota’s basketball robot is getting pretty good.
The robot, Cue, was the subject of a demonstration during a Japanese basketball game on Thursday, where it attempted to land shots from outside the three-point line.
From near the halfway line, Cue makes pretty light work of what is quite a difficult shot.
As per the Associated Press, to make the shot, Cue “computes as a three-dimensional image where the basket is, using sensors on its torso, and adjusts motors inside its arm and knees to give the shot the right angle and propulsion for a swish.”
While the robot has been touted as having perfect accuracy from free throws, longer distances can be a bit hit and miss, as you’ll see in the full video of the demonstration.
Cue scores once out of two attempts from three-point line, but nails the shot from near the halfway line. Still very good.
Well, all hail our new three-point shooting overlords we guess.
