Attention, World: We Now Have a Robot Samurai in Our Midst

Today is indeed the future, as a fully functional robot samurai now exists among us. Naturally, it’s the Japanese that gave birth to the blade-swinging machine. Created by Industrial Robot maker Yaskawa, the Motoman-MH24 can mimic the incredible swordplay of a master samurai. Seeing the machine cut a thin pea pod with perfect precision is just plain ridiculous. As impressive as it is, let’s just wish that it won’t go bonkers and start chasing humans for target practice.
