Boston Dynamics continues to crank out creepy robots of questionable value to humanity. We’ve seen its SpotMini robot navigate around a warehouse before, looking for human souls to consume and heads to wear. Now the quadruped is doing something even more scary – dancing to Uptown Funk.
Actually, what you are about to watch is a video from Agility Robotics of Cassie, a two-legged, ostrich-inspired robot and one of Boston Dynamics’ Spot quadruped robots. They are having a creepy little playdate.
Awww. Isn’t that adorable?
This kid is crazy. Crazy awesome. Check out this video of 15-year old Justin Stomp solving a Rubik’s Cube while spinning on his head. I know, crazy. I can’t do either of those things and this kid is doing both at the same time.

Ever since the Kinect Star Wars game’s Galactic Dance Off mode was announced, we’ve had reason to worry about this title. While I love the idea of tearing up the streets of Tatooine as the Rancor, I knew that it would be bad after I saw Slave Leia dancing and then Stormtroopers.
At this years CeBIT consumer electronics expo in Hannover, Germany, you’d expect there to be lots of cool innovations. A pair of pole-dancing robots was not what I was thinking, though. These are life-sized humanoids, with camera-shaped lights as heads that gyrate suggestively to music, which is played by a third DJ robot, who has a megaphone for a head.
Dancing is all the rage right now what with those popular network dance competition shows and all. Turns out robots are getting into the act too. The new Tosy DiscoRobo toy is all about shaking its groove thang and has heart shaped LED eyes to let you know that it loves you.
Ever heard of the Keepon Robot? I’m sure that at some point during your exploration of the Internet, you’ve come across this adorable little yellow robot called Keepon. It looks like two yellow puff-balls with eyes and a nose.
