Ballroom Dancing Robot

CNN.com - Dancing robot is strictly ballroom - Jun 7, 2005

Story.Ballroom.AfpJust what everyone was waiting for: a ballroom dancing robot. As a technical feat, it's pretty impressive; the robot predicts the human partner's body movement, and then matches it's movement to coordinate with the anticipated move -- which also goes well with teaching men how to lead, as if they lead wrong, the robot will go wrong. But, as a social thing... I can remember at least a few Jetsons episodes that involve just this scenario. They don't end well for George.
