Robot Taught Auzu Bandaisan Dance

A research team from Tokyo University has taught a bot to imitate dance steps. Produced by Kawada Industries, the 1.5 meter tall dancebot named HRP-2 or Promet can imitate auzu bandaisan, a Japanese folk dance. It learns with a video capture technique that records the steps. The reasoning behind this is that they want to record and preserve traditional dances that may be lost once the original humans that performed die. Wouldn't it just be easier to teach another human?
