Robot Teaches Dance, is Creepy
It looks like the Japanese are at it again… This time, they may have outdone themselves with one of the creepier concepts in recent memory. There are a handful of prototype robots floating around Japan that have been designed to teach school kids traditional Japanese dances. Also, these robots have no legs. Is it just me, or is the idea of a legless robot teaching traditional dance going against the principle of it being traditional? I’m pretty sure legless robots were not teaching (or performing) these dances when they were first created. In other news, legs are not necessary for performing Japanese dances. Apparently they are all performed while completely stationary. This is good news for me, because I don’t like moving a whole lot unless I am rewarded with strippers or alcohol… or strippers with alcohol. I don’t think Japanese dance involves either of those, although it might involve tentacles. They be crazy.
