The day foosball changes forever may be right around the corner.
Students and faculty at Brigham Young University just created an AI-assisted robotic foosball table.
Initially intended to keep up with human players, the machine has far surpassed expectations — now the creators themselves struggle to beat it.
Then using the camera, the computer calculates where the ball can go next based off color values of the paddles and ball, ultimately kicking it with lightning quick reflexes.
Through this project, students learn the concept: How you can control a machine to achieve the tasks that humans can do, says professor D.J.
