Having spent many a late night doing Karaoke in Japanese bars, the sight of these dancing robots seems surreal. I'm assuming it's real though - who knows what level of prep went into this. Balance, they say, is the hardest thing and these guys seem to have got the hardest thing right. This is, as you'll see, nothing to do with e-government but, think about it this way, if the Japanese could bring this level of sophistication and innovation to online services, they'd be leading the world. You can try several versions of this URL ... sony_05, sony_04 etc. Going to the home page, unless you're a native, won't help you much though. Can you just imagine if you can play any tune to them and, like the iTunes effects engine, it generates a dance track to it?
