Robotics engineers at the Yaskawa Electric Company in Japan have trained one of their Motorman industrial robots to use a Samurai sword.

By studying the movements of Isao Machii, a Iaijutsu master as he wielded a katana sword, they were able to replicate it in the Motorman MH24.

Side by side, the Sword Master and the robot arm completed five challenges, at first slicing their way through flowers, fruit, and peapods. They then rapidly cut a thousand times into practice targets. At the end of that last trial, Machii looks exhausted, but his unfeeling machine counterpart is as ready to go as ever. It’s a good thing it can’t walk.

Bernie Sanders Terrifies Republicans By Urging A Million Young People To March On Washington

The idea that the American people can get active and involved is why Republicans are terrified of Bernie Sanders. To the Koch brothers, conservative billionaires, corporations, and Republicans, Bernie Sanders is dangerous. Imagine what would happen if millions of people acted on what Sen. Sanders was suggesting. If one million young people, or millions of people who are buried under student loan debt marched on Washington and continued to march for days and weeks and months, they could change this country.

#FeelTheBern
During an interview with Yahoo's Katie Couric today, Bernie Sanders called on a million young Americans to join his political revolution by marching on Washington to demand action from the Republican Congressional leadership.

FTA: "If Oak Flat were a Christian holy site, or for that matter Jewish or Muslim, no senator who wished to remain in office would dare to sneak a backdoor deal for its destruction into a spending bill — no matter what mining-company profits or jobs might result. But this is Indian religion."

MX3D to 3D print a steel bridge on-site in Amsterdam using Robots.

#3dprinting   #robotics

The 3D printing R&D company MX3D is planning to print a bridge across a canal in Amsterdam, Netherlands. It is hoped that the robots used will print their own supports and gradually move across the water, creating the bridge as they go.

MX3D teams up with AutoDesk and few other companies to do this amazing work.

MX3D says the project is made feasible by its robotic 3D printing technology that effectively makes it possible to draw in mid-air. The multi-axis industrial robots to be used can print metals, plastics and combinations of materials.

For the bridge project, the robots will be printing in steel. They will use specially-designed arms that heat up the metal to 1,500° C   before welding the structure. This approach means structures can be created that are strong, durable and complex.  It will be as strong and as any other bridge. People will be able to walk back and forth over it for decades.

It is hoped that the entire process will take place on-site.  And, it will be built over the course of two months in fall of 2017.
