Now robots are dancing “The Human.”
In yet more evidence that machines are taking over the world as we know it, a now-viral YouTube video has surfaced of Boston Dynamics robots performing a dance number so well-choreographed it looks animated.
In the three-minute disco tech clip, three of the robotics firm’s creations — the humanoid Atlas, Spot the robot dog and box-juggling Handle —can be seen grooving in perfect unison to the Contours’ 1962 hit “Do You Love Me.”
The bipedal bots do the twist, Spot gyrates emphatically, and Handle wheels by in a routine seemingly too fluid to be executed by humans.
Needless to say, viewers were impressed by the dance droids’ dynamic display, as the clip already has more than 4 million views in less than 24 hours as of Wednesday morning.
“I needed this. This is so cool!!!” gushed one commenter of the less-than-robotic moves.
Another joked, “Robots after successfully conquering the world.”
Even outspoken SpaceX boss Elon Musk weighed in:
