Robot Arms Dueling with Katana: Apocalypse Soon

 |  |  |  November 19, 2014


When we all die, it will certainly be a preventable doom of our own making. If I were placing bets I’d probably go with “catastrophic environmental disaster,” but “robot apocalypse” is certainly a possibility, and the odds just went up… a LOT. Why, you ask? Robots arms that have been taught to wield katana with unerring precision.

Now we know that when the robots rise up against us we will be cut down with differentially tempered swords made in the Japanese style. The consolation prize is that we’ll probably die quickly from the very, very precise and clean cuts.

In the mean time, I’ll be working on a design for an EMP warhammer. Do you think Kickstarter or Indiegogo would be a better funding platform for such a weapon? Should early backers get a free upgrade to fine Nappa leather grips? Maybe if I hit stretch goals I can also make EMP maces, flails, estocs, and halberds.
