Have you ever thought of having a personal robot that can play with you without ever getting tired? Well, a German industrial mechanic has made that possible.
Ulf Hoffmann has made this incredible robot that's capable of playing table tennis. It's equipped with a camera to detect the motions of the ping pong ball. The most amazing thing is that this robot doesn't miss a single shot and can perfectly time its moves. It took Hoffmann two years to develop this moving one-armed robot. It's so fast that it can play a fast forehand, an agile backhand and even a real game. It’s surely a great practice partner.
