OMG RUN: Robotic Japanese Cheerleaders Are Here to Take Over the World [Video]

Seriously, this is how the robot apocalypse starts, with cute-looking robotic cheerleader dancing around and frying your brain with their pom poms just like Doctor Who’s Oods do.

In all seriousness though, this is a promotional video promoting Murata Manufacturing’s new sensors.

“Of course they cannot jump like true cheerleaders,” said Koichi Yoshikawa, a Murata engineer involved developing the technology.

“But the idea is that they are doing their best to stay stable on their little ball, as if they were telling the team, ‘hang on, do your best’!”
