Students and professors at the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China have built a robot that can not only quickly cover an entire badminton court, but it can also return almost any shot. This robot is a serious opponent.
I don’t get badminton. Isn’t it basically just tennis played like volleyball, while hitting something called a birdy? The birdy is also called a shuttlecock, which sounds like an astronaut chicken. I don’t get it. However, that doesn’t mean I can’t be impressed by this robot badminton player.
