Industrial robot nearly takes out ping pong champion Timo Boll
In a bizarre display of technological advancement, an industrial robot arm reportedly gave a tough fight to ping pong champion Timo Boll at his own game.
The robot KUKA KR AGILUS put up an extraordinary fight before it finally lost the match to Boll by 11 to 9.
According to TC, in actual fact this wasn't a real match but an elaborate video detailing the production process, which reveals that the speed of the interaction between the human and robot player is real, as well as its ability to repeatedly hit a desired spot within a millimeter of accuracy.
Meanwhile, the video is being seen as the German company's attempt to promote its new robotics factory in China.
