Spot Robots Celebrate Boston Dynamics Hyundai Deal With a Jolly Dance
Boston Dynamics is known for releasing entertaining and awe-inspiring videos of their robots performing all kinds of tasks. Now, in celebration of joining the Hyundai Motor Group, the firm released a video of Spot robots dancing to BTS's "IONIQ: I'm On It."
You may be familiar with Spot as the robot has been implemented everywhere from construction sites, in order to optimize them, to Singapore where it was tasked with reminding park-goers to socially distance. In this new video, the Spot robots dance like pros using their extra arm to undertake a perfectly choreographed routine.
The video starts out with the Spots lined up one behind the other so that it looks like one Spot has several arms. Slowly, however, the robots start to move to the right and left and you can finally see that it is indeed a series of Spots all dancing together.
We can't help but wonder who at Boston Dynamics conceived of the dance. Are their engineers also pro choreographers? Either way, the carefully planned dance and the happy vibrant music make for a video that is bound to make you smile no matter what mood you are in. If you don't believe us, watch it for yourselves!
