You saw the teaser now here’s the full video of Timo Boll playing ping pong with the Kuka robot. It’s highly produced, which is a shame, because I think just watching raw video of this match would be more exciting than this BS.
Well, it looks like I didn’t have to wait long for that robot vs human ping pong match. Here’s one happening on March 11, 2014!
Can we please get this robot arm in front of a Chinese ping pong player ASAP?!
Highly calculated perfection is often boring. See example above of two robots playing a game of ping pong with each other, each a master at the game at hand and none exhibiting any sort of risk in hitting the ball any other way but straight ahead.
