It’s Official: DiscoRobo Wins PopSci’s Ultimate Robot Dance-Off

This is about as close as DiscoRobo can get to raising his arms in victory

Thousands of votes were cast in our first robot dance-off, but the winner was clear early on. Tosy’s DiscoRobo earned a dominating 78 percent of the tally. Mattel’s Fijit friend earned 13 percent of the electorate for personality, and MyKeepon took home the remaining 9 percent — likely based on cuteness alone, since as basically two-thirds of a rubber yellow snowman, MyKeepon is not the most agile of dancers.
