I finally realized I could’ve been a professional ping pong player. But tragically, it’s too late for me now.

I have good reason to believe in my ping pong skills, thanks to Forpheus, a robot I met this week at CES in Las Vegas. Made by Omron, Forpheus first appeared at CES last year to show off its ping pong prowess. It’s back this year with an expanded range of movement and enhanced prediction skills.

When I tell people I played ping pong with a robot this week, the first thing they ask is: “Did you win?” I tell them that winning isn’t really the point. Though if we’d kept score, I probably did.
