Moment of Geek: Keepon Robot Rocks Out

Keepon is a Japanese robot that looks like a cross between Sesame Street's Bert and a bloated marshmellow Peep and has the magical power of reacting to sound and movement in its environment. This adorable video showcases the developers carrying Keepon around Tokyo and letting it dance to Spoon's "Don't You Evah." It's magical, truly magical.

Keepon and Spoon will reunite at WIRED NextFest in LA September 10, 2007. You can learn more about the fuzzy, creature-like robot on Loving the Machine. (Thanks for the tip, calamari!)

Sooo cute! I love the way it moves, much better than the cheesy dancing whatever things, and how he looked at where the music ended. I loves him.
