Wherein I discuss dancing robots and the benefits thereof

Supposition: We may all be subjugated by dancing robot overlords.
For the past few weeks, I have been assailed with robots.
Part of it was self-imposed. I went to a Star Wars exhibit at the Boston Museum of Science. At that exhibit, as an example of current-day robots, a Sony Qrio mock-up was shown. I was fascinated, but more fascinated by how shiny C-3PO is in person (It's true! He's damn shiny! I wonder who has the job of shining C-3p0...he obviously can't do so himself). I didn't think too much of it and returned to college.
Then, I saw this video.
Then, I saw Beck's "Hell Yes" video, featuring, yes, those robots again.
Conspiracy? Or concentrated effort by Sony to do to backup dancers what it did to Nintendo in 1995?
Not that I mind dancing robots, but where will this go next? Robots doing surgery? Robots arguing cases in court? Robots making smart-ass comments? They may replace us all.

1. R2 D2 shines 3PO and vice versa. That's what makes them gay.

2.I fear no robot I can push over
