Dancing Robots??

Did you all see the video of the new dancing robot created in Japan? I find this absolutely fascinating! Japanese researchers are hoping that the robot can eventually be used to record and save traditional folk dances that are slowly becoming obsolete. Of course, that's a long way from a robot that can actually pirouette and leap, but maybe we're closer to the age of Transformers than we think...

Check out this link for the story and a video of the robot in action.
