The Boston Dynamics robots spin and mash potatoes as they go to The Doour & # 39; Do You Love Me & # 39; to dance.


Boston Dynamics usually shares videos of its robots climbing stairs, jumping on blocks, or carrying heavy objects. However, in the latest clip, the crew shows their dance moves.

The choreographed dance is set to the contours “Do you love me” and contains the humanoid atlas, Spot the Robot Dog and the box juggling handle.

The two-minute and 53-second clip shows the robots trembling, turning and even making the mashed potatoes one after the other to the beat of the 1962 hit single.

Comments on the YouTube video, which has been viewed more than 470,000 times since it was released Tuesday night, reveal the amazing dance moves – some say the robots can dance better than most humans.

And even Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, was impressed after seeing the clip and sharing his excitement on Twitter.

"This is not a CGI," wrote the tech tycoon.

Boston Dynamics took the world by storm when it opened in 2009, leading to its human-like Atlas in 2013 and its Spot Classic in 2015.

Since then, the company has worked tirelessly to develop lifelike, powerful and powerful robots for the commercial industry.

However, typical research focuses on making the machines robust, flexible, and able to stand on their own two feet. However, the latest video, "Do You Love Me," shows a solemn side of the robotics company.

"Our entire crew has come together to celebrate the start of what will hopefully be a happier year: Happy New Year from all of us at Boston Dynamics," read the YouTube video title.

According to the company, Atlas is a "humanoid robot with high mobility, which was developed to overcome uneven terrain outdoors".

Atlas measures four feet nine inches tall and weighs more than 165 pounds.

The humanoid walks on two legs and releases his arms to lift, carry, and manipulate objects in his environment.

Boston Dyanimcs has shared a series of videos from Atlas of engineers being hit with metal bars to perfect its stability or to do parkour.

Atlas has shown it is able to do gymnastics, but this is the robot's first dance night.

However, the infamous robot dog Spot is no stranger to the dance floor.

The two-minute and 53-second clip shows the robots trembling, umping, turning and even making the mashed potatoes one after the other to the beat of the 1962 hit single

The four-legged machine showed the world its dance moves in 2018 for Bruno Mars & # 39; hit "Uptown Funk".

The minute-long clip shows how Spot steps and moves almost perfectly in time with the music.

He slides back and forth across the floor as he places his clawed hand on the melody.

At some point it even drifts its stern up and down and then goes for a walk on the moon.

"Our entire crew has come together to celebrate the start of what will hopefully be a happier year: Happy New Year from all of us at Boston Dynamics," read the YouTube video title

Since Spot is showing off his twerking moves, he's taken on bigger and better roles – helping doctors fight the coronavirus and patrolling Musk's testing facility in Boca Chica, Texas.

Atlas and Spot have been around for years, but Boston Dynamics' newest creation has only lived for a year.

The machine is called handle and balances on two wheels while boxes are lifted and pallets are loaded in a factory setting.

And although Handle was overshadowed by his predecessors, he made his dance debut in the video "Do You Love Me".

While the Atlas and Handle robots featured here are still in prototype stages, Spot is being sold to companies willing to spend $ 74,500 on a single unit.

Although Boston Dynamics has invested thousands to millions building its robots, the company has yet to make a profit.

However, it was acquired by SoftBank by Hyundai Motor Group as part of a $ 1.1 billion deal earlier this month.
