Japanese Robotic Dancers Are Cute And/Or Disquieting

Here are some of the mechanical participants of Tokyo's Robot Japan 2011 dance competition. Some of the contenders are charming, whereas others scuttle around in that abandoned Chuck E. Cheese that lurks in the umbras of your nightmares. [Robots Dreams]

    THEY ARE DANCING TO THE POLICE STORY SONG BY JACKIE CHAN!

      And a robot doing the Haruhi dance!

      Sir I applaud your knowledge of the old school Jackie Chan whose movies were way awesomer than they are now.

    Well.... there could be a whole heap of future applications. I think they should focus on just nailing down the movement, and not try to make the robots look like creepy anime girls, which is just.... well.... it looks.... wrong.

    On the technological side, it's pretty neat. On the aesthetics side, it's pretty terrifying.
