The International Robot Exhibition 2009 is underway in Tokyo, and Yaskawa is again showcasing its Motoman robots. We've seen how dexterous previous models were in robo chef demonstrations, but it seems they've now got a taste for the Force.

The choreographed moves are more cute than intimidating, but seriously, maybe we'll see lightsaber droids one day after all. [NetworkWorld YouTube Channel]
