    Impressive in terms of robotic engineering. Not so much in like, artificial intelligence.

    I`m just waiting for the one that can wipe my ass and make me cake.

    And do my homework. >_>

    "I, for one, welcome our future Sony dancing robot overlords."

    I`m guessing these guys will be leading the morning aerobics session before we continue construction of the 100 foot statue of our robot king.

    They all look impressive in videos, but are they really convincing "in the flesh"? Years ago I had a Coke can that danced to music, it looked great in the catalog and on video, but when you were in the same room, you got a "grind grind grind" noise as it moved from the gears inside. Spoiled the "it`s alive" illusion. Are these robots the same?

    I don`t think that this is a "new line of Sony robots" I was under the impression that Sony discontinued QRIO in 2006, and this video is years old.

    That wave at 00:55 failed. Still a better dancer than me though. "Every one needs a dancing robot"

    i have wanted one of these since i first saw them 3 or 4 years ago
    and they do dance and if you watch them you see that they look at each other to see where the other one is in the routine and correct them selfs
    but they neverwent on sell because they cost something like £10,000 each and it was only something sony was experimenting with
    i still want some to dance in my room it be awesome

    That`s pretty neat. It`s nice how fluently they moved. I wonder if they`re programmed to get back up if they fall over?

    Old, plus they aren`t even developing the QRIO anymore. They stopped developing it on January 26, 2006.
