There are some incredible tasks that robots of today are able to execute, as Yaskawa proves with its 'YASKAWA BUSHIDO PROJECT' video. Rather than simply showing off the prowess of its machines on their own, the company decided to show how closely the high-tech MOTOMAN-MH24 robot can mimic the movements of a master swordsman.

In the video, the swordsman demonstrates a series of cuts with a sword that the robot is able to execute with exact precision. Naturally, the allure of a robot vs. swordsman challenge quickly turned Yaskawa's content into a viral sensation on YouTube.

In the event that robots do eventually take over the world, hopefully they will not be as masterful as the one in this Yaskawa video.
