Have British scientists been reading my diary again? Because a recent advancement in robotics seems an awful lot like something I've been dreaming about for years . . . Robots that dance to punk music!
"The robots can decide whether a song is punk or not within 30 seconds. The more punk it believes the song is, the more it pogos in a "happy and frenzied way", said Professor McOwan."
They rolled out the punk machines for a series of live gigs, you can see the video here. The sad part is, it looks like the robots are the only ones in the crowd, leading me top believe the real reason behind these inventions is to create an appreciative audience for lonely bands.
