Robot English Teachers Do the Tango

2 February 2012 One Comment

A little over a year ago we told you about EngKey; the robot English teachers whose mission is to replaced all native English speaking human teachers in Korea in the next 2 to 4 years. These telepresence bots allow the Korean government the opportunity save money on expensive salaries by recruiting cheaper but qualified teachers in the Philippines to operate the bots from thousands of kilometer away.

Though they may be taking away human jobs, are they cool enough to put us to shame on the dance room? This youtube video of  two doing the tango can let you be the judge of that.

    Are these truly autonomous  or is this pre-programmed movements?  That would be very good programming but hardly amazing.
