An epic battle of man vs. machine. Furious action, sweat, servos and engineering clash in an all out battle who’s tide suddenly turns mid-game. I’m talking about table tennis (ping-pong to many of you), you know. The KUKA KR AGILUS demonstrates its skills with the Ping-Pong racket – a realistic vision of what robots can be capable of in the future – in a face off against Germany’s best.
Timo Boll, the German table tennis star, is the new brand ambassador for KUKA Robotics in China. The collaboration celebrates the inherent speed, precision, and flexibility of KUKA’s industrial robots in tandem with Boll’s electrifying and tactical prowess in competition. To celebrate the new KUKA Robotics factory in Shanghai, the thrilling video was a highlight of the Grand Opening on March 11th, 2014.
