I’ve been accused of being a little too paranoid about a potential “robot uprising.” I guess not everyone freaks out upon seeing a machine that can read your mind, or thinks an adorable mechanical animal that can jump and open doors is worrisome. But even if I am (hopefully) proven wrong and we never have to bow down to our machine overlords, it’s clear humankind has already lost one major battle to them: the battle of the dance floor. This robot dog’s sweet moves prove we just got served.Only a few days after showing the world their equally incredible and terrifying parkour robot, Boston Dynamics has returned with a video of their robot dog, titled “Uptown Spot.”Â We’ve watched Spot “grow up” over the years, getting more streamlined and advanced with each new generation, but “stop, wait a minute,” we never thought the day would come when he would be a better dancer than us.
What song would you love to see Spot dance to? Hit the right notes in our comments section below.
