Robotic arms get medieval in a display case

In what looks like a display case at a Japanese museum, two robotic arms swing away at one another with all manner of fantasy medieval weapons, such as maces, scythes and axes. It's too bad they don't actually hit one another, but it does look like each arm is tied to a panel that allows viewers to change what weapons are being used. The arms can then put the mace or axe it's using back on the rack, and retrieve the selected armament by way of a magnetic ring attached to each weapon.

Sure doesn't beat death rays and power claws, but I guess we should be happy these robots won't take over the world.
