So You Think You Can Dance: Hexapodal Robot Edition

Interested in seeing some dolled-up, six-legged robots cut the rug in an old-fashioned-Austrian-hexapodal-dance-off?

Really…? Cool, you’re in luck. Here’s a video from the 2008 Austrian Hexapod Championships. The moves start off pretty lame, but by the end of this highlight reel there’s some pretty dexterous ‘Hammer Time’s happening. The suave ‘bot in the Smooth Criminal-era Michael Jackson hat is Hexapodmeisterschaft, the winner of the dance category competition. 

Think Nigel would disqualify him for having six legs?
