The humanaoid robots from Boston Dynamics are back with another video, but this time the focus isn’t agility or power — it’s all about how well they can dance.
In a routine that would be at home on “Dancing with the Stars,” Boston Dynamics’ Atlas robot gets down to The Contours’ “Do You Love Me?”
As ever, the impressive video sparked responses far and wide — from the apocalyptic “We’re doomed,” care of sports broadcaster Rex Chapman, to the absurd, care of Tesla CEO Elon Musk:

It’s the first such video from Boston Dynamics following its acquisition by Hyundai from Softbank in mid-December that valued the robotics company at $1.1 billion.
Boston Dynamics describes the dance routine as a celebration of “the start of what we hope will be a happier year.”
