Robot Has Got Moves Like Jagger
The rolling Stones have created a music video with robot makers Boston Dynamics. In celebration of 40 years since the release of “Start Me Up” on the album “Tattoo You”, they decided to program “Spot” the robot dog to recreate the icon music video.
Spot takes on Mick Jagger’s moves as his band members mimic each of the band members actions throughout a 1min 24 second clip. The robotic dog even mimics the lyrics by lip syncing, or what ever a robot dog’s lip equivalent is, to every word.
Real Human Size Robots Dancing!
Robotics technology has moved on considerably since films like iRobot came out. The guys at Boston Dynamics have been at the epicenter of advancing this technology and to celebrate the new year (2021), they decided to program three of their robots to dance for us.
Meet “Atlas” the most human like robot on the planet. Boston Dynamics have managed to program this incredible machine to overcome obstacle courses, do backflips, and dance to our favourite human-made music! Watch their brilliant music video below.
Boston Dynamics was founded by Marc Raibert back in 1992. The American robotics company was formed as a spin-off from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and has been owned by Hyundai Motor Group since December 2020. These are the people behind this awesome showcase of musical technology in the video above. Regarding the making of the video above, the company said, “Our whole crew got together to celebrate the start of what we hope will be a happier year: Happy New Year from all of us at Boston Dynamics.”
A different robot made by a company called “Kuka” has learnt how to play instruments and even table tennis. In the video below you can see the robot playing a glass harp in a battle against Timo Boll, a professional table tennis player.
KUKA VS Timo In A Table Tennis Match
The glass harp-off is the second meeting of the two. KUKA and Timo Boll first featured in a table tennis match together. The video was criticized by the table tennis community who wanted to see the full match between the two. Watch the first meeting in the video below.
