Robot Goes Gangnam Style: Navy Robot Takes Internet By Storm [VIDEO]
A humanoid robot developed by the U.S. Navy may be the next generation of modern warfare, but for now, it's the grooviest robot ever - and it's going Gangnam. The robot, named CHARLI-2, was developed by the Robotics & Mechanisms Laboratory at Virginia Tech, and its creators decided to have a little fun with it, making it dance to the song Gangnam Style by Korean pop star PSY.

While the dancing may not be anything special as far as robot capabilities go, the Robot Goes Gangnam Style video has taken the internet by storm, generating more than 250,000 views in only a few days.
The Navy is very interested in the robot - but not for its dancing abilities. The Navy envisions it as a firefighting robot on ships. In order for that to happen, the robot would need the ability to handle fire hoses, fire extinguisher grenades and climb ladders - all of which Virginia Tech says it will be able to do soon.
