This is pretty high up there on the list of things you shouldn’t try at home, kids.

The maniacs at Irfon Automation wanted to show off how precise their Stäubli TX40 industrial robot was, so they did what all of us would in this situation — attached a knife blade to it, programmed it to play five finger fillet, and put a particularly reckless human in harm’s way.

Oh, and then they increased the speed, as you would.

We have to admit, it does make for an effective demonstration — although this robot still has nothing on Bishop, the android from Aliens.
