Ping Pong Robot made in China

A robot hits back a ball at Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, east China's Zhejiang Province, Oct. 9, 2011. 

Human-like robots developed by Zhejiang University in East China made debut on Sunday. The two robots as shown can capture the track of the ball by a camera installed inside before making reactions. The robots, 160 cm tall and weighing 55 kilograms each, took the university four years to develop. The university also aims to develop robots that can do housework.

The robots are able to track the movements of a table tennis ball and play back through a motion control system equipped with a built-in camera and an intelligence processing unit.
