100 Robi (NBC/APTN)

TOKYO (NBC/APTN) — To show that robots can be designed and produced in large numbers at a low cost, a Japanese professor showed off 100 little humanoid robots Tuesday in Tokyo. These little ones called the “100 Robi” performed a synchronized dance routine that went off without a hitch — or a glitch.

They’re the brainchild of professor Tomotaka Takahashi of Tokyo University. The robots weigh just over two pounds and stand about 1 foot high. Their dance routine lasted about three minutes.

Each Robi costs about $1,500.
