Boston Dynamics has taught its Robots how to dance.
While the following viral video may look like CGI, it is in fact real.
Boston Dynamics, the company based in Waltham, Massachusetts, makes some of the most advanced bipedal and mobile robots in the world. They act as an R&D facility, and recently their owners Softbank sold off 80% of the company to new owners Hyundai Motors for nearly $880M.
To show off how advanced their balance systems now are, the robots have been programmed with some pretty advanced moves, twisting and dancing along to the Contours hit tune Do You Love Me.
These robots are primarily being developed to serve humans. And now the dancefloor will be just one more place where someone will get served.
