Sony’s QRIO robots to dance in Beck video

Qrio“There’s a reason Beck has been so hush-hush about the video for his new single, “Hell Yes.” Actually, there are four reasons. They’re called QRIOs, so-called “dream robots” developed by Sony Japan as high-tech playthings for children. QRIO can carry on conversations, adapt to a multitude of environments and — most importantly — mimic human movements, including complex dance routines. Currently, there are only four working QRIOs in the world. And all of them appear in the “Hell Yes” video.” [via] Link.

  1. I just watched the Hell Yes video on, and I didn’t see any stinking QRIO robots. Maybe there’s another version coming out?

  2. I was disappointed they didn’t make the robots do “The Robot”. That would have been nicely recursive…

    Why does the WMP link require registration but not the Real?
