Timo Boll vs. KUKA Robot
Over recent years, Timo Boll and the KR AGILUS have squared up to one another in some tough contests. Today, the table tennis superstar and our robots form a perfect unit. See for yourself!
I’m a technology freak! KUKA robots are fascinating products: fast, agile, precise and reliable. Just like a good table tennis player. I’m certainly prepared for a hard-fought match against a KUKA robot.
Timo Boll versus the KR AGILUS: battle of the giants
Timo Boll vs. KR AGILUS: revenge with music
Following the sporting duel in the previous year, the second Timo Boll video, entitled “The Revenge”, featured the German table tennis champion and the industrial robot engaging in a much more delicate pastime. The virtuosic playing on the musical glasses calls for manual dexterity from the adversaries above all else.
Timo Boll – who was not just an athlete at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro but also the German flag bearer during the opening ceremony – and the KR AGILUS display total commitment. Neither is found wanting in this competition either with regard to pace or mobility. Find out for yourself! And you can see who comes out on top in this Timo Boll video...
Timo Boll in harmony with the robot
2016 is the year for rethinking – and the same goes for our brand ambassador, Timo Boll, who had the honor of serving as the German flag bearer at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
In the two videos, “The Duel” and “The Revenge”, Timo Boll competed against the KUKA KR AGILUS for dominance in speed and skill. First of all, the pair faced one another in a tough table tennis match, and after that tried their skills playing musical glasses.
In the new video, “The Perfect Match”, Timo Boll gets to know a new KUKA robot: with the KR titan on the KUKA omniMove mobile platform, he is practicing in perfect harmony.
