Killerspin Throw II Table Tennis Robot

Ready to become a real-life Forrest Gump? No, not with the whole soldier thing, or shrimp thing, or walking across the country thing. In this case, we mean the ping pong thing. The Killerspin Throw II table tennis robot can get you to a Gump-like level of ping pong mastery—bad haircut and chocolates not included.

The Throw II is just like one of those tennis ball machines (tennis is just ping pong standing on the table, as George Carlin said), as it sends up to 100 balls per minute flying at you. An included remote control lets you adjust things like ball placement and the degrees of topspin and underspin, and like any good robot should, it even picks up after you, collecting and recycling the balls back into play.
