Forpheus, the Ping Pong Robot takes on Marlo Anderson, the Guru of Geek

February 11, 2019

OMRON VP of Marketing, Matt Trowbridge explains the concept behind tOMRON VP of Marketing, Matt Trowbridge explains the concept behind their latest creation Forpheus, the ping pong playing robot that aims to highlight the fun and useful ways to use automation technology. At its core, Forpheus employs AI technology to read, track and measure the skill of its opponent. Sizing up the human player’s height and paddle maneuvering, Forpheus returns the ball with an eye toward improving its opponent’s game. The robot’s internal cameras and some sensors in the table capture and analyze the human player’s wrist and elbow movements, how quickly they return to neutral and 100s of other cues, all so it can offer coaching advice on how to improve your level of play. It even shows you a comparison between your technique and a field expert so you can see how you measure up to the pros. Forpheus was a 2019 CES favorite, to say the least
