French Robot Ballet at World Expo 2010

One of the robotics highlights at the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai was the robot ballet performed by 20 synchronized Nao robots of French Aldebran Technolgies. The 8 minutes dance involved information exchanges between the NAOs by WiFi or infrared signals. The robots were not remote-controlled, but able to "think" and act together.

The Nao robots are also playing at Robocup, the world´s largets robotics competition, that was held 2010 in Singapore. In July 2007, Nao was nominated as the official platform for the standard league by the RoboCup Organizing Committee, and successor to Sony’s Aibo robot dog.
