Robots that Dance
Welcome to my lense on Dancing Robots
How do you define what a robot is? When you start to think about it, it's actually more difficult than you might first think. As Joseph Engelberger, a pioneer in industrial robotics, once remarked: "I can't define a robot, but I know one when I see one." Well, I have decided to leave this particular debate to others and instead have taken a look at some of the latest robotic developments where their designers have focussed on dance movements. This may seem a little strange, but it is actually done for good reason. After all, to be a good dancer, you have to be a smooth mover, be agile and able to cope with balance extremely well. I hope that you enjoy this selection of Dancing Robots.

Will the day ever come when robots are seen as equals to us humans?
