2008 World RoboCup Dance
We had a heavy test and competition schedule, and could not get away from our own competitions very often, so these are just a few of the dance scenes, ones we saw when we had time between our own competitive runs.
This is one of their two robot elephants, on this one the ears move.
This is their set - the Taj Mahal.

I was unable to see their performance - this very brief clip of a test of their video is included only to show that some Dance competitors did use video (which my camera does not pick up at all well); (broadband click here), (dialup click here).
Other Dance Robots
Some of the other more spectacular of the dance robots we saw during a quick tour (and were given permission to photograph) were:-
A HUGE peacock with a tail that expands! See peacock with tail expanded and (extreme left) furled (broadband click here), (dialup click here). A closer look at this remarkable build (broadband click here), (dialup click here).
These few clips certainly do not do justice to the Dance items at Suzhou. If anyone knows where more clips of these performance exist, if they could let us know (Graeme @ Computer.org) we'd be delighted to to provide links to them.
