German ping pong champion to play against industrial robot next month When boats are launched for the first time, it’s customary to smash a bottle of champagne across the bow. But for industrial-robot maker Kuka, its new factory in southwestern Shanghai is being celebrated with a battle between man and machine. On March 11th, the company’s squaring off one of its Agilus robots against German table tennis player Timo Boll. While Boll has storied career of victories against human players, he’s playing against a model Kuka says is the fastest in the world. Typically those machines are used for product assembly, loading and unloading, and even painting, but in this case it will be trading volleys over a standard ping pong table.

This is some badass PR. The teaser video for the match is well done.
