Crave TV: Break-dancing with the MechRC robot

The inventor of the MechRC robot explains how a user-focused software package makes for a more rewarding, interactive robotic experience

It's not quite ready to complete a time-travelling assassination attempt on the mother of a future resistance leader, but the MechRC can pull a wider variety of shapes on the dance floor than many of its more fleshy, human counterparts.

Dr Jim Wyatt, the robot's inventor, explains to an apocalypse-wary Rory Reid how simple software for programming the MechRC can give a richer, more rewarding robotic experience for users eager to scare off their cat.

Available now for £400, the MechRC might not take over the world, but it may just steal your girlfriend.
