The dancing robot


Scientists in Japan have taught a human-sized robot to imitate the steps of a dancer.

They say the prancing dancebot could be used to record the movements of traditional dances that are being lost as their performers die off.

To demonstrate the robot's prowess, the team programmed the 1.5 metre tall machine to imitate the graceful sways and whirls of the Aizu Bandaisan, a Japanese folk routine.

To prove its accuracy, the robot can perform alongside a human dancer. And despite its "Terminator" appearance, the robot is remarkably lifelike.
