Trainerbot Update

PingSkills News

We have an update on the Trainerbot, a new table tennis robot that can be controlled with your smartphone. We are going to be working with Alex and Harrison (the creators of the Trainerbot) to provide PingSkills drills that can be used directly by the robot! Below is a message from Alex.

Trainerbot is doing amazing, we’ve been working day and night for the past 6 months perfecting Trainerbot’s hardware and now we are doing the final few lifetime tests before kicking off tooling. In addition, we are super happy to tell you that the Trainerbot you see now is at least 10x better than the Trainerbot you saw on Kickstarter. With our new spin change algorithm, Trainerbot can now do spin change drills, and long short balls drills under a 1 sec interval (this is incredibly hard to do, most robots today can’t do any of this).

With spin change and long short drills available, you will be able to create incredible content for all your Ping Skills' subscribers, and it will really feel like people are training with you no matter where they are in the world :D

We'll keep you updated as the Trainerbot gets closer to completion and when we have some PingSkills drills available in the Trainerbot app.

Really looking forward to the robot and of course the PingSkills drills app.  Latest report suggests it will be available in September 2017.

Hello Alois and Jeff.

As far as I know, Trainerbot is going to be released, hopefully, in the next month and I wonder whether you have already inserted some PingSkills drills in the Trainerbot app ... or what is, or what it will be, your cooperation with Alex and Harrison ?

Best Regards.

Hi Dario,

There will be the function of being able to utilise the robot directly with drills that we recommend.  It will be a matter of selecting the drill you want and away you go.  We are supporting Alex and Harrison in this venture by having this interaction between the drills and the robot.
