Today I met my first ever non-human table tennis player, Forpheus from Omron at the Messe Exhibition Center in Hanover, Germany. This machine is absolutely incredible and has inbuilt features such as artificial intelligence and the ability to learn from the opponent! What I found mind blowing was how well it handled my shots and spinny serves! I used an allround bat with Sriver rubbers on so I was able to generate a lot of spin.
How long until this robot beats a World Champion?
