The machines are indeed taking over.

Well, they may be just yet, but, if this video is any indication, they will. And soon.

Table tennis great Timo Boll recently played a match against a robot to help promote China's KUKA Robotics new factory. Guess what? Boll had his hands full before pulling out a win in what isn't the first step in a robotic attempt to dominate sports.

Boll squared off against the KUKA KR AGILUS and it's a machine. Like, Ivan Drago in 'Rocky IV' machine.

Heaven help us all.
