Hovis Genie Choreographed Dance
Here’s a fun video pointed out at Robots-Dreams. It shows five Hovis Genie robots doing a choreographed dance to “I Got a Boy” by SNSD, a hugely popular Korean pop group. The Hovis Genie is just like the Hovis Eco humanoid robot, with two differences: each robot carries a cell phone (or similar mobile device) on its chest, and the legs have been replaced by a 3-omniwheel platform. The omniwheels allow each robot to rotate or move in any direction, including straight sideways.
The same YouTube member has a number of other cool videos, including this one, showing a Hovis Lite using dynamic balancing to absorb blows without falling over (much).
Impressive work all around!
