Recently the Yaskawa Electric Corporation released an AWESOME video of an “MH24 – Motoman” industrial robot in a “duel” with Japanese Samurai Master and Guinness World Records holder Isao Machii. Named the Yaskawa Bushido Project, the company tries to mimic the precision of Iaijutsu, a sword technique cultivated from ancient times, with a machine.
In an attempt to unravel the essence of this art, Yaskawa analyzed Master Machii’s technique in 3D and reproduced the movements with the Motoman. Then, a series of tests of techniques ensues! How well can a machine copy a human? Watch the video below!
