Yaskawa Industrial Robots Have a Lightsaber Duel

 |  |  |  May 12, 2011


If you have ever seen an assembly line at a big plant like GM or Ford where they use lots of robots for some aspects of the build, you will have seen some bots that look like the Yaskawa Motoman robots here. These two bots are infinitely cooler than any bot with a welder or paint gun in hand.

These two Motoman bots are wielding lightsabers in a fight of Jedi bot against Sith bot. The fight starts slow motion and I wondered if that was it at first. Then they reset and take off full speed. I am impressed by the speed and agility of these bots; either could have taken out Grievous.

One of the bots uses the staff style lightsaber of Darth Maul and the other uses a traditional sword saber. Watch the video below and see all the lightsaber action you want, minus the hissing and popping from the films.
