The idea for this tennis robot was born after years of table tennis matches against each other and when they began studying in different parts built one brother a prototype robot to practice in secret.

A dozen prototypes later, has now launched Trainerbot on Kickstarter.

The project is seeking 80,000 dollars and if you want one you have to donate at least $ 329 excluding shipping.

With Trainerbot can, via an associated mobile app, create your own workouts so you can get better at the different tennis teams.

You can set each on the table the ball will land, how fast it will go and whether there should be any spin on the ball.

Chief Exec Nick Read, and Chief Financial Officer, Margherita Della Valle are taking one for the team because Vodafone hasn’t been performing.

Vodafone’s share price is down 15% since the start of this year, 19% since Read took over at the helm and 44% since the start of 2018.

Corporate tradition is for senior execs to get massive bonuses regardless of how badly their company is performing, while still attaching strict performance conditions to their underlings’ variable pay.

Possibly in anticipation of a looming shareholder meeting Read and Della Valle voluntarily requested the 2020 conditional share package they were recently awarded be cut by 20%.

“This was requested to reflect the low valuation of the share price following its reduction over the year and particularly the change in value between the date of the Remuneration Committee’s decision in respect of the value of the Awards and the date of grant,” said the Vodafone announcement.

Of course they’ll still get 80% of the award so long as they meet whatever conditions are required for the payout.
