Robots Dreams have caught a great video of Taylor Veltrop using teleoperation to control two robots in a great dance routine. Using a combination of Microsoft Kinect, Wiimotes and Willow Garage's ROS robot OS, Taylor has his Nao and Kondo KHR-2HV follow his movements and dance.
The dance was created for the Robot Japan First competition and as you can see was very well received.

Singularity Hub brought this video to my attention. A quite amazing one of a Seattle doctor, Dr James Porter, using a da Vinci surgical robot to fold a paper plane. It is really exceptional but wait for the end to get an idea of the size of the finished item.....
