Dancing robots are nothing new but in this case a small multi-servo ROBONOVA humanoid robot performs an exceptional routine of the famous zeibekiko Greek dance. While it isn’t the most demanding dancing routine in the world these characterful moves render this small mechatronics device especially lifelike (original performance example in this video). Apart from the funny side of this small video one can speculate about what aspects of human behavior are important for seamless interaction between robots and humans, characteristic moves showcasing specific emotions may be equally or in cases more important than appearance.
