Watch This Robot Dance Like Michael Jackson

Who's a better dancer: Michael Jackson or this robot that dances like the King of Pop?


BQ is the second-largest smartphone manufacturer in Spain. One of its biggest endeavors is to inspire the next generation of engineers.

And the video at the top of this page will certainly do just that.

BQ’s CEO, Alberto Mendez, has built a robot kit for kids that enables them, for under $100, to create their own robot using drag-and-drop programming - and it’s all open source.

The Michael Jackson-dancing robot was created using this kit. Check it out, it’s pretty crazy how good the robot’s dance moves are.
