From the outside, it seems like most of Sweden’s greatest scientists are dedicated to the quest to create the perfect pop song, but apparently not all of them. Robyn, one of our greatest pop-song scientists, sings about robots a whole lot, and now a class of students at the Swedish technical college KTH is making a year-long project out of building a Robyn-inspired robot. Recently, Robyn visited the class to meet that robot, which seems to dance and shake a whole lot. Could be wrong here, but it seemed to me that Robyn was struggling to find nice things to say about the machine: “The robot… is cute?” Make up your own mind by checking out the adorable-in-several-ways two-minute video below.
