Stanford students create Jedi Robot

Lightsaber-wielding robot can 'battle' humans

As part of a hands-on course in experimental robotics, the class created a robot that can fight with "swords" or "lightsabers" as seen in the Star Wars movies.

I still think we can take them in a fight, though. Look for the power plug.
