Robots. Fighting. Lightsabers.

While Google's keynote speech at the annual I/O developer's conference was a bit of a mixed bag - some cool news, but no big surprises - at least one thing has come out of it that's caught our imagination.

Techcrunch has produced a great report into a robot at the conference which can fight with lightsabers.

No, it's not going to change the world on its own. But actually, the idea behind it just might. The robot is part of a project aimed at making it easier for PHD students to develop robots, providing a reusable platform on which to build the next great robots of the future.

Take a look above for the fight - and head over to Techcrunch for the full story.
