Watch a robot playing Connect 4

If your friends are too easy to beat at board games, how about challenging this robot?

A new research centre in Edinburgh is hoping to develop the robots of the future.

They could be used for anything from surgery to security... but this one's been trained to play Connect 4.

And it's really tough to beat because the robot can work out every move it needs to win.
