You've seen robots hike over rocks and dominate at table football, but have you ever watched a machine face off against a human ping pong champion, Forrest Gump-style? Well, March 11th is your lucky day.

In a little less than a month, the KUKA Robot Group will pit its flagship machine against professional table tennis champion Timo Boll. Based on the trailer KUKA posted earlier this week, it's going to be a match worth watching.
