Limor Schweitzer, founder & director at Robosavvy, a company specialised in development and support of humanoid robot parts/kits, introduces "Fonzie" the dancing robot in the video below. Fonzie was made in Korea for fighting competitions, and Robosavvy team has reprogrammed him to perform dance. In the video it dances to "Sexy And I Know It."
Schweitzer says the reason Fronzie was made was for reserach and explains how the company is using Fonzie to develop a research platform for human-robot interaction. "Affordable 3D printers, supercomputers at the price of lunch, royalty free 3D models, free software and crowdfunding – this is the new playground for creativity." says Schweitzer.
Wherever it goes, Fonzie always steals the spotlight with his sexy dance. If you want to know more about Fonzie, watch below Limor Schweitzer demonstrated this dancing robot 'Fonzie' live at NEXT13.
