A father an son have made a business out of creating these giant Transformers out of scrap metal and spare car parts.  The first took three years to make in an abandoned warehouse based on photos they got online, but they've now turned their hard work into a thriving business; they made about a million RMB (over $160,000 USD) last year.

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.
