Submission + - Robot helps preserve ancient Japanese dance (newscientisttech.com)

Motion-capture is used to record a human dancer's movements, and the HRP-2 robot reproduces these movements. It seems like a very practical application for robotics and perhaps one-day only robots will remember how to do the twist or the foxtrot. Although the full article is behind the barrier, it includes a video of the robot in action. Also, there are some images here"
