Domo Arigato, Mr.Asimo

Robots used to be be pretty bad when it came to dancing. They were so bad, they even had a dance style named after them. However, gone are the days of mechanical arm-jerking and torque-driven hip swiveling.

There's a new robo-sheriff in town and he's got his own law -- the sixth law of robotics: 'A robot shall allow a human being to 'get served' as many times as required, in the event of a dance-off'. LMB introduces a new robot designed to put the funk in 'functional automaton'.
