We're not 100 percent sure about both major tech conferences this year from Apple and Google. They were both important for the furthering of each's respective OSes. However, we didn't really get super-excited about the content of either, so I guess we'll just have to enjoy videos of robots falling down and/or slicing up tiny objects in a samurai sword challenge.
Seriously, everyone. That's a real thing. Some engineers in Japan decided to capture the movements of a real-life samurai (who also happens to be a master swordsman) and upload them into a robot arm, which then defeated the samurai in a duel of skill.
