Ping pong playing robot
The Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, China, presented a ping pong playing robot, named Kong Robot, 1.6 metres tall (5 foot 2) and weighing 55 kg (121 lbs).
Keeping an eye on the ball and using a ping pong bat might be child’s play for some humans, but it’s a huge advance for machines.
“The robot arms are installed on foundation beds. They have a stable system, while ours are based on humanoid feet, which are unstable, when the arms are moving fast, robots could either fall or function inaccurately.”
