In 2009, Yaskawa equipped three of its Motoman industrial robots with lightsabers and made them
fight until there's only one bot standing perform a choreographed dance. Now it appears Yaskawa has realized that when you give lightsabers to robots, people expect to see a Jedi battle, not ballet moves. Check out the demo the company put together for this year's IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), in Shanghai.
