What iconic dance can the SpotMini robot do?

Answer: The Running Man.

by / October 17, 2018

The last time we saw Boston Dynamics’ dog-like robot, it had gained an appendage that allowed it to open doors for itself and friends. Now that appendage is being put to a different use, as part of the robot’s slick new dance moves.

Boston Dynamics posted a video on its YouTube channel Tuesday of the SpotMini doing a routine to “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson (feat. Bruno Mars) in which the Running Man dance is performed several times. There’s also some robot booty-shaking and head-banging.

Looks like we don’t have to worry about the robot apocalypse anymore, unless their plan is a dance-off.
