Watching your friends playing the human knife game can be somewhat unsettling. However, when a robot gets in on the game, things get a whole lot tenser. Humans are more likely to make mistakes than a precision perfect robot so it’s somewhat more understandable to trust the technology to your friend next time you play.
Seen in the video above, the Stäubli TX40 robotic arm swiftly stabs the knife in a very precise manner, avoiding the man’s fingers with ease. Whether you like a little bit of danger in your life or simply have a love for robotics, this human knife game turned robotic makes light work of what can be a very dangerous and gruesome game. Let’s just hope the robot doesn’t malfunction or glitch when you try.
