Sorry bro, your days of dominating everyone at beer pong are numbered.

Empire Robotics has created a robotic arm with a specialized ball on the end of it that hardens and softens to pick up objects.

So, for example, it can pick up ping pong balls and toss them into Solo cups.

Watch it flawlessly make 6 cups in a row in the video above, and – if you dare – challenge it in person at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

"The robot is not perfect, so it's possible for a human to win, but it's pretty good, so you'd have to be pretty good at beer pong," said the company's project manager John Dean.

Based on the chemical makeup of the water, hops, and other ingredients in the beer, they've managed to determine, with 99.3% accuracy, if a given bottle of brew comes from Germany, Spain, or Portugal. The biggest differences they found were in levels iron, potassium, phosphorous, phosphates, and polyphenols. Yum!
