We'll let you decide after watching Boston Dynamics' latest video featuring several of its robots, and their dance moves. Set to the Contours' Do You Love Me, the choreographed moves are impressive (if a little bit alarming, and definitely mesmerizing). The dance starts with one of the robotics company's bipedal robots. Pretty soon another shows up, and then robo-dog Spot steps in. Warehouse robot "Handle" makes an appearance, and soon all the robots are hopping, shaking, and backing it up, along with other classic dance moves.
With a namesake like Atlas, you wouldn't think Boston Dynamics' bipedal robot would be the most lithe specimen on the planet. But then we've already seen it has a knack for parkouring, and now you can add dancing to its list of talents. In its latest sure-to-be viral video, we see Atlas and the entire Boston Dynamics family, including the dog-like Spot and box-stacking Handle, dance to "Do You Love Me" from The Contours. And as a 6'2 man, let me just say I'm jealous that anything so tall can move with so much mobility and grace. This isn't the first time we've seen a Boston Dynamics robot gyrate its limbs to a classic tune.
Here's some Craveworthy news: a toy version of the very cute, very cool dancing robot Keepon is in the works, and it will sell for only $40. BeatBots, the firm behind the Keepon project, has teamed with Britain's Wow Stuff to develop the dance machine into a toy called My Keepon. A prototype is being shown off this week at the Nuremberg Toy Fair. So far, the high-end, $30,000 version of Keepon, developed by Marek Michalowski and Hideki Kozima, has been used in Japan and the U.S. as a telepresence tool for autism research and therapy. Keepon can look around with its camera eyes, bounce up and down like an excited baby, and dance to a groove.
