Restoring Personal Sanity With the Help of a $30,000 Robot

(originally posted 1-24-11)

Pandora song of the day: I’ve been meaning to share this tune for so long that it’s actually starting to haunt me every time I hear it now. What can I say? I liked everything about both the song and the video, I just couldn’t think of a good way to turn the available facts and ideas I had about it into an interesting attachment.

However, upon hearing it again this afternoon, it finally reached that point with me where I was going to have to force myself to share it in order to protect my future sanity… 😉

Since there is no story, I’m just going to stick to the facts and keep this simple:

1. Cool dancing robot.
2. The robot is called a “Keepon.” They are available for sale, even though they are primarily used to study social development and communication in children (at least according to the current Wikipedia page). It also lists the robot’s cost at $30,000!
3. According to me, the song is damn good.
4. Since I’m technically a few years behind, I hope this isn’t all old news to everyone.
