TED Talk(s) #18- Robots A Plenty!

Today's TED talk(s) features stars that are growing in popularity!  Robots!!  Some fear that robotics and technology are taking over our lives!  Others just can't wait to have a Rosie to cook and clean for us!  Most are in between.

No matter what your opinions on robots, I think, after watching these two talks, you'll find them entertaining and charming!

Our first talk combines dance and robotics.  Bruno Maisonnier of Aldebaran Robotics choreographs a troupe of tiny humanoid Nao robots through a surprisingly emotive performance.

Our second talk combines robotics and humor!

In this first-of-its-kind demo, Heather Knight introduces Data, a robotic stand-up comedian that does much more than rattle off one-liners — it gathers audience feedback (using software co-developed with Scott Satkin and Varun Ramakrishna at CMU) and tunes its act as the crowd responds. Is this thing on?
