Dancing Robots, Way Cooler Than It Sounds


I’ll admit, I was skeptical when I saw the title of this video. I assumed I was in for three minutes of watching robots unsuccessfully attempting to walk and their creators optimistically trying to convince the audience that this constitutes “dancing”.

Oh how wrong I was.

This is a small slice of awesome. The world has seen some pretty advanced robots, robots that can play the violin, robots that fight and even robot waiters, but this is fun, creative and mesmerizing.

The robots, or hexapods, are competing in the 5th Annual Austrian Hexapod Dance-Off. Boy, those Austrians sure know how to party.

This is almost too geeky for me, but even if you’re not into robotics, check out the video. It’s worth it, trust me.
