Boston Dynamics robots swing their hips on BTS

What if the future of music was the robot boy band? In a recent video posted on social media, the Boston Dynamics machines offer us choreography worthy of the best K-pop groups.

We already knew that Boston Dynamics robots were able to dance much better than most of us. This time, the company recently acquired by Hyundai Motor Group is thinking bigger, and tackling a monument of Korean music: BTS. The boy band is no longer to be presented, since for several months now, it regularly explodes the records of YouTube. His latest single to date, Butter, has been viewed more than 112 million times, just 24 hours after it went online.

To celebrate the arrival of Boston Dynamics at Hyundai, it’s finally on IONIQ : I’m on it that the boy band performed a few dance steps alongside the company’s machines. As usual, the result is as stunning as it is strange to watch. The robots are perfectly synchronized, and give the choreography performed by Spot, the mechanical dog from Boston Dynamics, a completely mesmerizing dimension, no doubt aided by the agonizing serpent-like mechanical arm on their back.

Hyundai capitalizes on Boston Dynamics

After having formalized the acquisition of Boston Dynamics, Hyundai logically wants to make the most of its investment. Before integrating the robotics company into its long-term projects, and in particular its shift towards greener mobility, the car manufacturer has just offered itself a nice communication coup, by mixing one of the most popular musical groups. in vogue at the moment, and the most popular robots in the Internet sphere. Published yesterday, the two videos created by Hyundai and Boston Dynamics have already accumulated more than 430,000 views.
