Dancing robots!

They can't drive cars yet, but boy can they dance.

All I can think about is that this robot has more rhythm than I do, and this is the dance they'll do after mercilessly ending my life.

Edit: These robots.

Anyone know if they're still built around the hellishly loud gasoline generators for power?

10 seconds to comply

Kind of like a cross between ED-209 and the Soul Train dancers.

Properly outfitted with Gatling firepower, they could serve as IRS agents, traffic cops or by-law enforcement for infractions committed by 9 year old girls at unlicensed front-yard lemonade stands.

As always, "For your safety".

Reminds me of the "Putting On the Ritz" scene in Young Frankenstein.

Very impressive. Boston Dynamics has cracked the code on what made more primitive robot motion look robotic, and they've leaped the uncanny valley
