This ping-pong robot is a delightful creation coming to you from Omron, a company that is better known for its high-tech healthcare products.

This demo contraption includes a full-sized ping-pong table that is essentially a display, and shows the predicted flight path of the ball as well as where you should be hitting it. This is not the first ping-pong robot from Omron, but it's the most powerful one yet because more processing power is needed to figure out where the ball goes once the robot hits it.

Don't get too excited and expect to get one of these in your home -- ultimately, this ping-pong robot is designed to showcase Omron's considerable skills in the world of automation.
