When smart folks get into sports, it is only right to listen especially when it is Ping Pong. This interactive ping pong trainer is absolutely amazing.

According to the genius who invented it:

The basic idea of my bachelor thesis was to track the ping pong ball in realtime to create data visualisations for trainers and players. After a few weeks of working I started developing a projected mapped interface for the ping pong table to show the collected data. By projecting game obstacles on the surface I figured out that I can change the game play totally.
