Table Tennis Champ Timo Boll to Play Against ‘Agilus’ Robot
Remember that scene in the last Matrix Revolutions when the machines breach the city of Zion and the human armies try to fend them off?
Well that, except with table tennis.
Timo Boll, the 8th ranked player in the world, will face-off against ‘Agilus’ — a table tennis-playing robot developed by KUKA Robotics — on March 11.
While my knowledge of the Terminator franchise inclines me to give the nod to the robot, it’s worth noting that Boll is really, really good at table tennis:
Good luck, Timo Boll. We’re all counting on you.
