Trash can robot dances like a crab


This robot from Osaka, Japan morphs from a humble looking trashcan into a crab-like creature that can skuttle around on the floor. It also tells jokes, plays drumrolls on itself, and tosses oversized dice among other things. Check out the video for the full experience, you won’t regret it.

    it must be the wrong video cause this one is really boring (when you don’t understand their language).

    I guess crab have a dance when they want to mate.

    Yeah, what the heck. Theres no footage of the robot DOING anything, just talking. Gonna have to say I regret the “full experience”

    Yeah, should this be a different video? Or are the announcers hilarious in Japanese?

    Deep, deep regrets. I feel shame, anger, and a little bit hungry, in addition.
