If you’ve ever tried to snip a snowflake from a folded sheet of paper, you know that it’s not as easy as it looks. And for those of us who are clumsy crafters, this may be one more area where robots have us beat.

In honor of the holidays, RE2 Roboticsa mobile robotics technologies company that specializes in robotic manipulator arms with what they call “human-like performance,” released a video of one of their robots cutting and unfolding a paper snowflake. As you can see from the video above, the final result is impressive.
