Robots with rhythm: Boston Dynamics' dancing androids a hit
These robots have rhythm.
Boston Dynamics released scary robot videos, but this one is clearly a playful attempt to close the books on 2020.
"Our whole crew got together to celebrate the start of what we hope will be a happier year," the Waltham, Massachusetts, company says in the caption.
Thousands applauded the robots' moves and the technology powering them. Others appeared to be a little freaked out by their dexterity.
"Slightly creepy, I have to admit," tweeted Carl Bildt, a Swedish diplomat who co-chairs the European Council on Foreign Relations.
"Do you love me? Not when you come to annihilate us," tweeted Jan Nicolas, a photographer.
