This is how the robot overlords will celebrate when they take over.
It's pretty awesome how dancing makes robots less intimidating. Looking forward to seeing more nontrivial Machine Learning on these robots. Credit: Boston Dynamics. pic.twitter.com/wnB2i9qhdQ

Boston Dynamics, the Massachusetts company known for its cutting-edge work in robotics, released footage on Tuesday of its famous robot collection boogieing to The Contours’ 1962 R&B hit “Do You Love Me?”
The impressive performance featured the humanoid Atlas, dog-inspired Spot and box-moving Handle, all of which move with unsettling precision in the nearly 3-minute routine.
It went viral after it was shared by Reza Zadeh, a technology executive and machine learning expert, who said that the dance made the robots “less intimidating.”
