Table Tennis Robot By Ulf Hoffmann

Table tennis robot Ulf Hoffmann

Industrial mechanic Ulf Hoffman has built an extraordinary table tennis robot. As an instant rival to the KUKA robot that Timo Boll played against, the engineer has created a garage bot that would give the Uberpong team a run for their money! His robot, the UHTTR-1, is remarkably dextrous and “due to the really good servo motors and the lightweight aluminum construction, there is a rapid response capability” as Ulf points out on his website. The robot took two years to build and is currently able to hold a ping pong paddle and play in passive mode.

– Could you beat UHTTR-1?  What would the score be?
