Watching these robots dance humbles me, since I can neither dance well or design functional robots. These things can dance REALLY WELL for little hunks of metal, and they are functional. I’m jealous.
This dance competition was held at Tokyo’s International Robot Exhibition. Here are some videos of the top performers in the competition.
This one won first place in the competition. Not bad.
I don’t know how this one didn’t win, the breakdancing alone makes it the best, at least to me.
This was the 2nd place winner, makes sense since everyone loves Thriller. Also pretty impressive.
There are more videos of other robots posted in this article from the Huffington Post, but the ones I included here were my favorites.
I wish I could design robots that danced like these ones do. Sigh….
