Robots dance the night away in fun new video

Boston Dynamics is celebrating the turn of the calendar in style with a clip showing all its robots boogying away.
If there's one company that has continued to impress over the last few years, it's Boston Dynamics - the brains behind some of the most lifelike and capable robots the world has ever seen.

Now all three of its latest creations have come together for a dance video like no other - a demonstration of modern robotics that is as impressive as it is hilarious.

The video, which is intended to celebrate the upcoming new year, begins with one of the firm's Atlas robots jiving away to Berry Gordy Jr.'s 'Do You Love Me'.
As the video continues, a second Atlas is introduced, along with the dog-like SpotMini robot and the two-wheeled Handle robot which is typically used to pick up and move boxes in warehouses.

Between them, the robots provide a fascinating performance.

You can check out the video for yourself below.

"Atlas" is the future.  Imagine that dancing robot weaponized...and not dancing.  'Please step out of your car'....'you are under arrest, place your hands behind your back'...'hey, uh, listen pal, you gotta pay Johnny 8 grand by next Tuesday or Atlas is gonna come rip your head off...literally...capeesh?
