Two Industrial Robots Have A Ninja Sword Fight

November 14, 2014


This is a video of two ABB brand industrial robots swinging katanas in a choreographed fight sequence. Who do you think wins? If you answered, "Neither, this is clearly just a demo highlighting the robots' precision," congratulations, you're obviously a better guesser than I am. Man, I knew I shouldn't have bet.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Lokuzt, who could easily nunchuck the shit out of both of those robots.

    The machine on the right clearly won. He scored with a strike to the left robot's hand, thus, ending the match. Did you even watch the fight? ;p

  • Video is so perfect I mean we can use such methods to train other sword fighters. Their angle of holding this real samurai sword is ideal when they were touching point to point. http://www.atlantacutlery.c... It is now worthy to get this on sale if we can get such amazing tutorials.

    This is going to end well.

    At least this a more elegant fight than the earlier Roomba Dagger Battle:

    So slow... waste of effort.

  • Who do I think wins? No idea, but I know who loses. Humanity. Humanity loses.

    This is what I would expect from GW. Obviously those machines cut him in half and posted this.

    No matter how many automated machines take on the responsibilities of laborers, there will always be someone needed to repair the machine... or program it to swordfight... or play pingpong...

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    That until someone makes a machine that repairs other machines. So with two of them they can repair each other and more thousands of others.

    Hello. My name is Intel Montoya. You deleted my father. Prepare to be rebooted.

    ...and this is why industrial workers are ultimately doomed. If the machines don't take your jobs then they will cut you in half with a precisely wielded Katana...
