Here at OWLconnected, we've posted our share of videos about robots. And videos of dancing. And videos of robots dancing.
But even we haven't seen a robot dance like this. If you're also a regular reader of the OWLconnected eMag (free with a subscription to OWL magazine, we highly recommend it!), then you'll be familiar with Boston Dynamics. This robotics company is a real pioneer in the field. They've created everything from pint-sized hopping spybots to huge pony-sized all-terrain robots.
But maybe the most impressive of their creations is SpotMini, a dog-mimic bot that can run, fetch, and move just like your average Labrador. Except that we're fairly certain that a pooch can't dance like this...
UpTown Spot is a funky pup
A recent post to YouTube by Boston Dynamics shows SpotMini performing a flawless minute-long routine to the Bruno Mars hit, "Uptown Funk". Warning, some funky maneuvering may be involved.
Have a groovy weekend, everyone!
