On the first day of Christmas Autonomous Systems Lab gave to me… tiny dancing robots in front of a Christmas tree.

A robotics team from ET Zurich, a university in Switzerland, created a Christmas video featuring autonomous robots playing homemade instruments and grooving to a strange yet catchy techno tune. They may not be expert robot musicians, but these weirdly adorable machines sure know how to break it down.

Get jiggy with it!


Seasons greetings earthlings!
