Industrial mechanic Ulf Hoffmann built the robot called UHTTR-1, which plays table tennis with the aid of its own camera. It doesn’t miss a shot, it's just not as aggressive as some players I’ve seen -yet. But what a great practice partner!

I found the tennis anything but boring! -via Laughing Squid
