Murata Cheerleaders: Robots Dance In Sweet Synchrony To K-Pop

“Murata Cheerleaders: Promotional Film”

According to Engadget, Japanese robotics company Murata often demonstrates its technology in fun ways as shown in the above video of the Murata Cheerleaders:

“As Murata’s Section Manager Koichi Yoshikawa puts it, while the Murata Boy series of robots [an earlier project] might seem a little frivolous, it’s about communicating something fun and the potential of high-functioning sensors, some of which could make their way into self-driving cars.”

The tech involves both hardware and software including Murata’s sensors that can also end up in such products as smartphones. See below for a fun behind the scenes video including footage from the early days of the Murata Cheerleaders.
