'Gangnam Style' dancing robot wins Chinese competition
A robot programmed to dance to the tune of South Korean rapper Psy's viral hit 'Gangnam Style' has been crowned a competition winner in China.
Its slick moves to the song earned it the single dance title at the second Chinese Intelligent Exposition and Industrial Summit Forum, Sky News reported.
More than 30 contestants from six universities took part in the event in the eastern city of Hangzhou.
"Gangnam Style is quite a popular online video recently, and it is favoured by many people, we also think that this song is quite creative, so we decided to use this song as the background music," Zhao Sheng, the designer of the Gangnam Style dancing robot, said.
The robot competition was divided into three categories: dancing, boxing and serving.
Single and double dance, ballet and eight-robot group dance competition categories were held on Thursday, according to China's CCTV broadcaster.
