Boston Dynamics, the engineering team behind robots that do everything from run and jump to wash dishes, has once again debuted a video that’s either amazing or creepy, depending on your point of view. This time, the team’s robot dog SpotMini is dancing its artificially intelligent butt off to Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk.”
Its dance moves are, admittedly, pretty decent. SpotMini twerks, moonwalks, and works the dance floor better than a lot of humans could.
That Spot robot dancing to uptown funk does the running man better than most shufflers LMAO I wanna dance with it

And sure, it’s an incredible feat—until you remember that robots are inching closer to world domination. As Mashable depressingly points out, a robot that can be programmed to dance is probably only a few degrees away from a robot that can be programmed to end human life.
Even if the human race is doomed, at least we can watch entertaining robot videos until our imminent demise.
