Robot Plays Table Tennis

(YouTube link)

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! Learn more about it at Hoffmann’s blog, if you can read German, or you might prefer the Google translation. He mentions that his son added text and music to the video so "it is not so boring." I found the tennis anything but boring! -via Laughing Squid
