We’ve seen robots chefs, robot police officers and even robot priests. The latest addition to this freaky lineup are robot sumo wrestlers.

Robots are taking to the ring to compete in the traditional Japanese sport. Yet, unlike most robots we see today, these bots aren’t created to mimic human actions.
