Dancing robot gets all the attention at IIT-B Techfest

Techfest — the annual technological event of Indian Institute of Technology’s (IIT), Bombay on Thursday unveiled several exhibits for gadget buffs. However, the highlight of day one was the ‘Gangnam’ robots.
The robot has been designed by Aldebran robotics, a French company that is into building state-of-the-art social and service robots. The company has managed to bring in ‘Nao Robot’, a humanoid bot all the way from France. These robots perform dance moves to the worldwide music hit ‘Gangnam’ Style, by South Korean rapper Psy.
“These robots win your hearts instantly with their looks. And while you’ll still be in much awe looking at these bots, it will show you its ‘Gangnam style’ dance. On day one, over 12,000 people thronged just to take a glimpse of the Nao Robot. I think the popularity of the Gangnam style was something which managed to attract a large crowd to this stall,” said Shrey Singh, Media manager, Techfest 2013. However, if you plan to buy this robot, you will have to shell Rs 15 lakh.
