Angry Birds even a hit among robots

A Bitbeam-based machine seriously owns Rovio's hit mobile game, which must make up for the angst it feels for looking like a clothes rack.

Another step forward in the march toward the Singularity--robots playing Angry Birds.

Our manufactured robotic friends have the unfortunate trait of being classic trend-followers rather than trendmakers. So the fact that robots are now playing Angry Birds must mean--as if there was ever any doubt--that Rovio's signature game is officially a big deal.

Today, egg-thieving pigs; tomorrow crushing humanity?

Specifically, the Bitbeambot, which looks like something constructed from tinker toys and leftover racks from your local Old Navy, currently holds the No. 1 spot on the "Robots that Play Angry Birds" leaderboard.

Ol' Triple-B doesn't just play the game, apparently--it owns it. It currently has a very comfy lead over Arnold Schwarzenegger's T-100, which appears to just be linked to a joke Twitter account rather than representing an actual robot.

The Bitbeam-based CNC machine was seen in action earlier this month at the Jenkins User Conference in San Francisco, but you can watch it do its thing in the videos below.
