Murata Cheerleaders: Robotic Cheerleaders Precursors of Doom: Video
"Weebles may seem like basic toys now, but in their day they used an impressive weight system based on the laws of physics to "wobble but never fall down.`
To bring this childhood toy into the modern-day, a Japanese firm has created a troop of Weeble-style robotic cheerleaders who dance and move while balancing on a ball.
And thanks to built-in gyroscopes and infrared sensors, the robots perform in perfect synchronicity - but never fall over."
The Murata robotic cheerleaders may be more fascinating to watch than Olympics synchronized swimmers, but I hope they never replace the well-endowed NFL cheerleaders.
This is how the robot conquest of the world begins: First a Roomba robotic vacuum cleaner, then robot cheerleaders, and tomorrow a robot will be giving you orders at work.
At least the Murata cheerleaders aren`t blond, that would be just too spooky and scary, for children and adults.
I guess we shouldn`t worry about robots taking over, the zombie apocalypse will occur before that happens.
