Who would have thought it? These robots have rhythm. In order to get a group of NAO robots to dance in sync, a group of scientists have programmed them to use techniques based on quorum sensing (the way bacteria and some insects communicate). This makes each robot sense what its companions are doing so that it can keep in step, join the dance late, or even recover from a giant human bully knocking it on its behind!
