Man vs machine: table tennis star takes on robotic arm in Kuka spot

Ever since the first Terminator film was released, the question of mankind’s ability to survive against a robotic rebellion has been mooted in popular culture. And now, using this concern as the premise for its new ad, Munich-based Sassenbach Advertising has pitted a Kuka robot arm against German table tennis legend Timo Boll.  


In addition to exhibiting the full range of motion and speed of Kuka’s product, the ad also reassures us that, if it came down to it, a pro table tennis player would be able to win a completely staged match against a robotic arm. With that concern settled, we can now return our attention to other pressing matters, such as whether or not the world’s powerful people are in fact descended from a reptilian super race.
