Have you ever wondered how tv sports networks track the ball in real-time? This process works similarly to it, in our experiment we are tracking a table tennis ball in real-time using OAK-1 cameras for tracking, vibration sensors, and physics algorithms in order to not only use a table tennis ball in a real game but also develop a 3D model and animation of the ball in action. Visitors to the booth will be greeted with a full-size table tennis table and be invited to play. They can either play with one of the presenters or another Imagine guest and watch as their game is tracked in real-time.
