Damm, these robots can dance!

Check out these NAO dancing robots from French company Aldebaran. If after 15-20s you think you’ve seen enough click forward to 50s and watch the robots get really funky.

There is a lot more to NAO robots than being cute. The plan is for them to be assistants round the home helping with tasks ranging from playing games to helping with the cooking. If you watch these videos you will see that there is a little way to go before you start seeing these robots for sale in your local supermarket, and the price will have to come down a little from the current €1,400, but I don’t think we are a million miles away from consumer robots taking off.
