Saw that there is a dedicated area for robots:

I was browsing kickstarter and saw that JOOLA has a table tennis robot: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/joola/joola-infinity

There was also a lot of hype about Trainerbot, but it seems that it still hasn't launched and backers are upset: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/trainerbot

I think the JOOLA robot has the same functionality as the Newgy 3050 and about half the price. Would it be worth it to pre-order one?

I just saw this too. I'm actually pretty tempted. I'm already looking for a low cost one at first, as I'm building a house that will have a table tennis room in it, but I won't have a lot of money for a robot initially. Long term I am hoping to get a nicer robot. I was already thinking of getting an iPong Trainer Motion as my first robot, so the level that includes one of those was really interesting to me. At that price, if they are able to pull it off, this could be a steal.
Alpha, did you end up going in on this?

I'm still 50/50 right now, I've been reading the comments on the trainerbot indiegogo page and will wait to see what JOOLA says about the questions they have.

I decided to get in on it. I was going to get an iPong Pro Trainer as my initial basic robot anyway. If it works out, $450 for a high level robot that works off an app is a steal. I can splurge a little more on my table. :)

Just saw their update, now I am really tempted to get it now. Gonna wait till my next paycheck to buy the lowest tier one.

Is there a difference between the iPong trainer and trainer motion?

As a former robot owner who has spent hundreds of hours doing robot training, I can attest that this robot's specs look enticing. But don't be tempted to purchase one without a catch net (assuming it's even offered in that configuration).

It looks like there is a catch net and recycling system included with the Infinity Robot.
Most of the iPongs don't go from side to side...that's why I like the idea of the Trainer Motion as a basic one, it can at least change location.
