I have a confession to make. I’ve played through just about every Angry Birds level on every Angry Birds game out there. But still, I’ve not been able to get three stars on every level yet. I might just need an Angry Birds-solving robot to do that. Good thing there is one already.

The OptoFidelity robot shown in this video playing Angry Birds didn’t actually learn how to solve every level on its own – it took a human to program it to do that. It’s still pretty impressive that it’s able to play through the game without human intervention now.

OptoFidelity robots are actually used to test touch panel durability, so what better way to do that than to simulate the most addictive game in the history of mobile devices. Here’s a behind-the-scenes video that shows a bit more of how they made the robot play the game so well:

In the clip, they say they managed to get three stars on every level, which is certainly better than I’ve been able to do with my human fingertips.
