Psy's wildly popular moves are being performed by a robot.

South Korean researchers have developed a robot that can learn human dance moves. Hubo Two was created to have movements made to look realistic using motion-capture cameras that track a dancer's movements. For example, no one can accuse this robot of being too stiff. His arms are flexible enough to do the famous lasso-swinging move.

The researchers said Google has ordered two units of the robot for about $40 million a piece. The researchers are from the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology.
