See how the Boston Dynamics robot family dance like 2020 was a good year

With a namesake like Atlas, you would not think that the two-legged robot from Boston Dynamics would be the most agile specimen on the planet. But then we already saw that it has a skill to park, and now you can add dance to the list of talents. In his latest viral video, we see Atlas and the entire Boston Dynamics family, including the dog-like Spot and box-stacking Handle, dance to ‘Do You Love Me’ from The Contours. And as a 6’2 man, let me just say I’m jealous that anything can move for so long with so much agility and grace.

This is not the first time we have shown a Boston Dynamics robot its limbs in a classic way. Back in 2018, the then SoftBank subsidiary shared a video of Spot dancing on ‘Uptown Funk’. By looking at the two tracks in succession, it is emphasized how far the robots of the company have come within two short years. The dance we saw in Spot in 2018 was impressive, but it could not pointe dance like its counterpart in 2020.
