Robots Dance to the Beat and Into Our Hearts
Finding information about this gem of a viral video (posted below the break) has been tough. All we know is what we've been able to glean from a YouTube posting -- that Yongchul Lee, from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), put together this impressive demonstration of robots getting down.
The song is "Nobody," a 2008 hit from the K-pop group Wonder Girls and the first track by a Korean act to break into the United States' Billboard Hot 100. The tune is certainly a good one, but the stars of the show here are the dancing robots. They strut their stuff in perfect sync with the music, and do an impressive job of recreating the shoulder rolls and hand claps performed by the group in the single's video. The best part is the finale B-boy breakdown, which finds the adorable blue bot flipping into a handstand and kicking his little metal feet in the air.
We've lost countless hours of productivity to this bit of viral goodness, so we'll leave you now to watch it on your own... Okay, fine, maybe we'll watch just one more time. [From: YouTube]
