Guinness World Records has recognized Forpheus as the "first robot table tennis tutor". The machine, which holds a ping pong paddle, can not only play against a human, but teach them as well. How? It taps artificial intelligence to determine the ability of its opponent, while using two vision sensors to keep a robotic eye on the ball, as well as a movement sensor that focuses on the human player's movement. Cameras located over the table keep track of the ball's position at a staggering rate of 80-times per second.Continue reading for another video and more information.
At first, this look like a 2007 Jeep Wrangler JK, but upon closer inspection, you'll see it's actually the "RattleTrap" by Martin Barkey Racing Products. Powered by a twin turbocharged 5.9L 12-valve Cummins engine generating 500 hp and 1,000 lb-ft of torque, it sits on 44x19.5" Pit Bull Rocker Tires that go anywhere. The original body was lengthened, and the frame stretched, to handle the power. Other upgrades include: a custom roof, River Raider tube fenders, an Off Camber Fabrications bumper with 9500lbs Ramsey winch, and Line-X body spray for added durability.

Intel used 300 of their custom "Shooting Star" drones to put on a stunning light display during Lady Gaga's Super Bowl LI Halftime Show. More specifically, each drone measures approximately a foot long square, weighs just over eight ounces, and sports a plastic and foam body. They communicate with each other wirelessly using a central computer to execute its dance routine, while the computer checks the battery level as well as the GPS signal strength of each drone just before showtime, and assigns roles accordingly. Reserve units were put on standby, and ready to take over within seconds should one (or many) falter. One thing you may not have known is that Intel had to tape the drone display long before the Super Bowl to avoid violoating airspace rules.

Lampuga, a subsidiary of Hamburg-based Sashay GmbH, unveils Lampuga Air, an inflatable jet-drive surfboard that boasts a modular design, enabling owners to swap the jet drive between four different hull styles - from the standard 6.5-foot (2-m) surfboard to a short, lie-atop body board. Since an electric jet drive consisting of a motor, battery pack and other components is no small, collapsible piece of hardware, Lampuga builds the Air drive into a separate module, which secures to the hull on site. The jet drive has a 15-hp motor, good for 40-minutes of continuous use on a full charge, while topping out at 29 mph (47 km/h). The rider controls the Air with a wireless handheld controller.

Designed by engineer Martin Sula, JetSurf is essentially a motorized surfboard good for 34mph on the open water. This is made possible by a specially designed two-stroke 90 cubic centimeter MSR 50.2 HXT engine producing a ample 12-horsepower to propel a featherweight carbon fiber hull that tips the scale at just 30-pounds. All of this means it's easier to handle on the water, and a breeze when transporting the board. Click here for the first image in today's viral picture gallery.
