Fantastic “Beer Pong” Robot uses Precision Air Pressure



          

Details

Students at the University of Illinois have created a precision method of sorting different objects and shooting them across a room (perfect for beer pong).  You’ve probably seen a similar demo in a physics classroom : a  jet of compressed air keeps a ball floating above the ground.  Full details are available on the U of I website including more videos and a pdf presentation on their technology.
