Acid-trip-worthy robot is a better dancer than you are

Keepon likes to dance.

Robots do a lot of fun things. They cook, clean, bartend, and save lives . Some of them even play music . But this little guy, "Keepon" from Carnegie Mellon University, is a Beatbot! He might look like something off of a trippy kids' TV show like Pokemon or the Teletubbies, but in fact, he's a "socially rhythmic robot" who can detect the beat of the music and get jiggy wit' it. He puts most of us humans to shame.

No, Keepon does not dance the Robot, but he does pump out a nice little groove to Spoon's "I Turn My Camera On":
