 The robot does not only play table tennis exceptionally well, but it also teaches its students the game by projecting an image of where the ball will land. The advanced algorithms and artificial intelligence capabilities even allow the robot to assess the students’ gameplay and rate them. The robot then tailors its teaching lessons by its assessment.

The cutting-edge motion and vision sensors enable the FORPHEUS to track all movements during the match. An array of cameras situated above the table follows the ball 80 times a second.

The best part is that the robot is just like a human coach. It displays messages to encourage its students. The project’s lead developer Taku Oya says,
“At the moment it is a human who teaches a robot how to behave or teach, but in the next 20 years it may be possible that a robot teaches a robot or a robot develops a robot.”
