Watch This Advanced Robotic Arm Face Off Against a Master Katana Swordsman


When you think about robotic arms, you probably think about prosthetics or assembly lines. They're something that have become very useful in the last century through not only improving the lives of humans, but in automating the production line industry.

But to think that's all a robotic arm is good for is absurd.

In this video, an advanced robotic arm wields a Katana and faces off against a master Katana swordsman. The task is to get the robotic arm to perform on the same level as the master swordsman, not only in precision, but also in speed.

Both are relatively equally matched in speed and precision, slicing through various things like fruits, flowers, and more.

The only difference, as you'll see in the video, is that the robotic arm requires careful calibration and control, while the master swordsman is ready to tackle anything without such pamper.

Pretty cool, huh?
