Before stumbling on this video, I thought my friends were the most entertaining dancers. But watch 20 Nao robots, invented by Aldebaran Robotics, as they dance in unison at the Shanghai 2010 Expo.
A Nao robot weighs 9.5 pounds and stands 23 inches tall. It features Wi-Fi connectivity, four microphones, and a voice recognition and analysis system that understands English and French.
Imagine the fun you can have programming the robots to dance to your favorite song. But at more than $18,000 a piece, I think I'll just stick with my friends.
