Playing ping pong is not fun without a partner. With the Omron Table Tennis Robot, you will always have a partner to play against. The machine not only plays against humans but calculates easy-to-hit positions, so you can keep rallies going. The robot recognizes your standing and paddle positions to analyze the position of the ball in 3D and predict its trajectory.
