Jenga robots are nothing new. We have covered a bunch of simple ones in the past. This MIT robot goes about playing it in a smarter fashion. It has a soft-pronged gripper, camera, and force-sensing wrist cuff to feel the tower and blocks. The robot uses visual and tactile feedback it receives to play the game like a pro.
As the researchers explain, the learning system developed for this robot can be used in other applications. You can find the paper at the link below.
