Say what you want about robots being our future overlords and all that, but we think they're really just here to boogie. I mean, if all you wanted to do was get your groove on but some engineer kept programming you to scare prisoners
or little children
, you might go looking for a little payback too, right? Thankfully there's MechRC, a 17-servo kit newly available in the Americas that, despite his menacing visage, should do wonders to soothe human-robot relations through a vast array of funky moves. Thanks to what looks to be some easy to use (though sadly not Mac compatible) software, would-be robo-choreographers of nearly any age should be able to sharpen their teeth here, and while $599 isn't exactly impulse-buy territory, that's considerably cheaper than many of the other
robot kits we've covered before -- and some
of them can't even shake their tail feather! MechRC sure can, just check out the "Evolution of Dance" homage after the break. Judson Laipply, you just got served!
