Boston Dynamics have dancing robots and it was both entertaining and somewhat frightening.
In a new video from Tested, Adam Savage went out to Boston Dynamics to check out how they teach a robot how to dance. Luckily, the robot dog didn’t turn against its humans while shooting the video.
How does a robot dog learn how to dance? Adam and the Tested team examine and dive into Boston Dynamics’ Choreographer software that was behind Spot’s recent viral dancing video. We take Spot to the field to test a few of its dance moves and are mesmerized by its nimbleness! As we explore Spot’s new movement abilities, we’re starting to see a universe of possibilities for how adjusting its gait gives Spot more character and personality.
