If you need to brush up on your Lightsaber skills this new battling Lightsaber wielding robot arm created by researches at Stanford University might be the perfect practice opponent.
The team have used a Microsoft Kinect motion controller to help the robot determine where its opponents Lightsaber is, enabling it to decide on the best tactic to use , whether that be a defensive stance or an all out attack. Watch the video after the jump to see it in action.
The new robot arm has been nicknamed the “JediBot” and although a little slow at the moment, I am sure with a beefier processor and a few upgrades it will not be long before it becomes a formidable foe to spar against.
