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.

Everything you think you know about hangovers is wrong.

That's because science hasn't really studied them much. We know more about outer space than we do about what's going on with you the morning after you thought it would be clever to down 10 PBRs and dance on a bar. Only 406 out of 658,610 biomedical journal studies listed in a database covered the subject.
