The robot, also called mannequin or dancing machine, is an illusionary street dance style—often confused with popping —that attempts to imitate a dancing robot or mannequin. Roboting gained fame after Michael Jackson used the dance when he performed " Dancing Machine " with his brothers, and later performed the dance during his solo career ...

I changed the video link to the same file hosted on Youtube, as ebaumsworld makes enough ad-money already.
I've reverted the following by User:Cabanaguy The dance is often performed or correlated with the song Mr. Roboto by Styx, although the song was not the original insperation for the dance. Although the robot is notable for not being danced to popping music (various kinds of funk), I don't know or am able to find indication that Mr. Roboto would be especially popular. Styx themselves do a really bad impression of the robot dance (though wearing cool masks ;-) in the accompanying video. This sounds more like the common ridicule of the Robot than a notable fact.

Since the robot is frequently confused with popping and liquid dancing in general, it is important that the video clips linked in this example are good examples of primarily the robot dance. Liquid and popping have their respective articles and video clips on those could include robot clips, since the robot is recognized as a particular technique in popping.

Ok, so... The robot IS fun, and IS funny, and IS entertaining. But... People who can really 'bot make it look great. I think it's kind of a bummer to talk about the people who make fun of bottin' here on a page that should explain more about the dance. I mean, other things are often made a joke of, but, their wikipedia articles don't cite where you can find people making fun of that particular thing. I'm not going to take those out, but i AM going to find some good vid's of people bottin', cause they're out there. -- Protocoldroid19:22, 12 August 2006 (UTC) 1. where are sources being found because I see a lot of spots reading "citation needed". -Caitlinmball (talk) 18:47, 7 February 2021 (UTC)
"Unlike most other dances, the robot may also be accompanied a cappella by making vocal impressions of beeps and motadse orasdff noise." I've searched for both of these words in a dictionary and neither me nor it have any idea what they mean. Are they gobbledygook, or some sort of jargon (and therefore worthy of a stub briefly explaining them? RossMM20:41, 21 September 2006 (UTC) 1. Just nonsense/vandalism.

The inventor himself is not robotic, merely his style of dance. Someone needs to change this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 07:51, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
As a locker I'm quite perplexed as to why in the description it says that "All movements of the Robot are started and finished with a lock," which almost seems to imply that Robot has come from Locking since the link to Locking is there. In locking what we call the lock is fairly distinct, and nothing like you ever see in Robot. I think the correct term is "dime stopping", at least that's what I gather from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_m3GHzVq-QQBecause Robot isn't one of my main styles I don't know heaps about it. Any second opinions? Tank (talk) 06:29, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
I could not find any Wikipedia guideline on capitolization of dance moves. I lower cased the term, for consistency, other articles such as Moonwalk (dance), use lower case manual of style. Wolfpeaceful (talk) 17:06, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
