(TrustedReviews)  Future Omron Robotics Technology for Exploring Possibility of Harmonized Automation with Sonic Theoretics, nicknamed FORPHEUS, holds a Guinness World Record for being the first robot to teach a human table tennis. It was developed by the Omron Corporation in Japan.
By combining vision and motion sensors with technology that accurately captures the speed of a moving ball, it can determine not just how it needs to respond to return the shot, but also where the ball will land when it does.
By using these speed-sensing cameras above the table, this means that the human player can see exactly where the ball will be returned, and thus improve their game.
