Japanese science blogger extraordinaire K. Moriyama took some amazing videos of the Dancing Robot Project from Digital Content Expo 2010.
The project, led by Mr.SAM (dance choreographer), and researchers from AIST (Mr.Yokoi Kazuhito) and Tokyo University’s IRT Laboratory (Mr. Masaru Ishikawa), was announced at last year’s DC Expo (more info about it here). As amazing as the HRP-4C’s dance routine is, it’s kind of hard not to get distracted by the much more lithe human dancers… I’m officially a leg man. :o
If you haven’t subscribed to K. Moriyama’s YouTube channel, be sure to head over and do so via the source link below – he regularly attends and films robot-related events. He also reminded everyone of HRP-2 Promet’s dance routine from back in 2005 from his Twitter.
