KUKA Robot Group is not the only one who prepares a sports clash of man and the robot – on it, work hard and amateurs in garages. And that quite well, you might say.
The robotic arm of this corporation will soon in the public test their strength against table tennis champion Timo Boll. Something similar in his garage already has Ulf Hoffmann.
He succeeded, at least judging by the video attached to this article, make a surprisingly agile and skilful robot. UHTTR-1 probably could not overcome a pro like Boll, but it certainly could gave quite a hassle to most of us amateurs.
See, after all, in the video.
