Boston Dynamics, the company known for its high-tech robotic developments, has recently created a new artistic presentation, involving 7 Spot robots dancing in unison. The company commented their endeavor saying that ‘it was an opportunity to test the limits of their cybernetic creations’.

In the video below, you will see a carefully choreographed sequence of movements quite closely resembling a dance performance, except that the dancers are not humans. These yellow robots are strictly following their synchronized internal clocks: no matter how advanced they are, they still cannot understand what music is playing. Even the smallest step is the result of careful planning and programming.
But the end result clearly demonstrates the superior ability of robots to repeat pre-programmed motions with the utmost precision every time they conduct this show.
