Android’s Got Talent! Beats Dancing with the Stars [Video]

Well, it looks like the little green robot gets around. Our best friend here at AC, the Android Mascot has done it again. This time it is in the form of a dancing robot. I must say though, watch the full video as this Android has some mad skillz. Dances in sync with the beat and everything. Not to mention having those moves while in a suit can't be easy. This might remind you guys of the Giorgio Armani Android hitting the Catwalk.
