Japanese sword masters are awesome. Robots are awesome. This video is awesome.

This is pretty incredible; the sort of precision that this robot was able to demonstrate is really a thing of beauty. I could use one of these dudes when I'm making dinner. Anything that can cut a soybean pod length-wise with that kind of perfection is welcome in my kitchen.

And I figure if they work alongside me, there's less chance they will use this unbridled ninja power to chop my head off.
