14 robots dancing for New Year in China

For Chinese New Year (23 january 2012), 14 robots did breakdancing for Year of the Dragon in China.

“Fourteen identical robots took the stage to dance to a modified version of the “Korobushka,” a traditional Russian song that you will remember from the classic puzzle game, Tetris. For many, the highlight of the show was how the robot army entered the event.. Dancing in unison, the robots perform various classical dance moves, as well as some modified “breakdance” steps involving standing on their heads and spinning their legs in the air. While certainly not a breathtaking performance, the work that went into making sure the group could move in such synchronicity is admirable.”
