Whole Lotta Foolishness Going ON!

I guess I must live under a rock somewhere. Have any of you ever seen this guy before? Yesterday my husband and I went to the county fair and met Rock-It.

We look up and coming towards us is this 9 foot tall Robot and he is talking to us cracking jokes, acting silly so I took a few shots and came home and googled him.  Seems he is famous. I found this info on Rock-It.

ROCK-IT, known as the ultimate galactic mascot, walks, talks and interacts with the crowd. Numerous digital voices enable him to spontaneously talk using his own style of quirky humor. ROCK-IT has a comment about everything, and people love having a chance to verbally spar with a robot. You may even find him on the dance floor when not talking with fair-goers.

Am I the only one that has never seen or heard of Rock-It?
Just for fun, I am adding a few YouTube short videos, so you can hear his voice and see him dance. the first one shows a short dance, the second you can hear his voice.

Well, I NEVER!!!! If you've been living under a rock, then so have I. I'm spellbound! Never heard of him, but what a terrific post he makes. After watching him closely in the videos, I think there's a human under there somewhere, so does Phil. How could a robot dance so smoothly? Plus, how would a robot know what the people are saying and doing in order to make the right response? How many of these things are there? Love this silly, amazing post!!!!

I am with Ginny. I think there is a human in there or one operating him and answering questions. I may be wrong. Something just does not ring true with Rock It. :-)

I saw something in a news article a while back, I can't remember where but it did show a photo. He is fun to watch, the videos were great. I have to agree with the others, there has to be a human in there somewhere. I don't think robotics has developed to that point quite yet.
