Engineers Build Robot That Can Beat Humans at Air Hockey
Nuvation boasts that creating a robot that can beat a person in air hockey is a great engineering achievement, and I suppose it is impressive. But there are two problems with this:
1. If you're an engineer who's smart enough to develop a robot like this, shouldn't you be focusing on more important things?
2. The human playing against the robot in the above video is just about the worst air hockey player I've ever seen.
Now, I guess Nuvation says the robot has made progress since that video was shot, but I'm still skeptical. I've played quite a bit of air hockey in my day, and I'd like to challenge this robot to a game. Until then I'm not sold.
