Omron's Forpheus table tennis robot demonstrates its skills at Ceatec Japan on October 4, 2016.

Omron's table tennis robot is getting smarter.

At this week's Ceatec electronics show in Japan, the company has unveiled a new version that uses machine learning to assess the strength of an opponent and ramp up its game accordingly.

The robot, named Forpheus, was first shown at the event in 2014 to impressive reviews.

A series of robotic arms manipulate a table tennis bat, guided by cameras that watch the ball and predict where it's going to land.

Omron developed the robot to promote the company's sensor technology and this latest version is showing off some of what can be done when sensing combines with machine learning and artificial intelligence.

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.

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.

Table tennis is not a sport that’s particularly easy to practice on your own.

That’s where the new Infinity Smart Table Tennis Training Robot, created by iPong and table tennis company veteran Joola, literally comes in to play.

While there are other robot pingpong trainers available, this new device promises comparable quality, but is far more affordable for the average pingpong-playing Joe.

It fires out balls at a rate of 30 to 100 per minute.

But it doesn’t stop there.

It can perform just about any kind of shot — from no spin to topspin, underspin, or side spin — by moving 150 degrees side to side.

The updated machine adds a companion arm that can serve up balls in the air, and better predict smashes through improved AI.

The motion controller, or the “brain,” tells the machine how to hit the ball, advising it on timing and direction within a 1,000th of a second.

With all the recent talk of AI posing existential risks to humanity and our privacy, Japanese company Omron is taking a softer, more innocuous approach.

Specifically, with its table tennis robot Forpheus, which strives to pursue “harmony of humans and machines” by patiently teaching us how to play ping-pong.

Although ping-pong ball-pitching machines like TrainerBot exist, Forpheus can actually live up to the feeling of playing against a real opponent.

First introduced in 2014, the fourth generation of Forpheus (easier to remember than “Future Omron Robotics technology for Exploring Possibility of Harmonized aUtomation with Sinic theoretics”) was recently displayed at the CEATEC trade show last week.

The updated machine adds a companion arm that can serve up balls in the air, and better predict smashes through improved AI.

The motion controller, or the “brain,” tells the machine how to hit the ball, advising it on timing and direction within a 1,000th of a second.
