Professional Table Tennis Champion Timo Boll Scheduled To Play Match Against a Chinese Industrial Robot

German professional table tennis player Timo Boll is set to take on KUKA Robot Group‘s KUKA KR Agilus industrial robot in a promotional table tennis match on March 11th, 2014 to celebrate the opening of the new KUKA Robotics factory in Shanghai, China. Boll is a widely recognized professional player known for his tactics, and the KUKA KR Agilus is an incredibly fast robot — though it’s unclear exactly which version Boll will be facing in the match.
