    This is quite an old story, but I just loved the title...

    "How to build a sword-wielding, tennis-playing, WiiMote-controlled, friendly robot...

    [​IMG]

    The idea was to take one industrial robot, add a laptop talking to a WiiMote, strap on a tennis racket, have it follow the swings that the user makes, and do it all in a few hours on a Saturday so we could get back to our busy schedules. Of course we had to put on a sword too, and if there was time, maybe an Airsoft gun. Also, we wanted it to fight people, but you can’t have everything."
