Karen Cheng - Robot Breakfast

By Liam Dryden

Dancer Karen Cheng has basically perfected the Robot dance. And WE ARE SUSPICIOUS.

In a world where robots are becoming more and more advanced, and some even appear human, you'd be hard pressed not to suspect that the girl in the video below is some kind of android. But nope, turns out Karen Cheng is just really, really good at pretending to be a robot. Or is she really really good at pretending to be a human pretending to be a robot???

After spending a year learning to dance (and creating a viral video from the results), Karen has pretty much achieved all of our secret dreams: Perfecting the precise jerky limb movements required to pull of a convincing robot dance. And what is she doing with this newfound skill? Performing an amazing skit onstage of a robot girl trying to eat breakfast. Complete with robotic sound effects, liquid damage malfunctioning and a proud robot dad in the audience, Karen's routine has got us both very amused and very suspicious.

Check out the performance below and let us know what you think: Are robots among us, or just frighteningly talented people?
