If you need a DJ for your next party you might want to consider giving the Shimi Android stand a call to keep the beats blasting all night long.

Dubbed by its creator Professor Gil Weinberg as a "musical companion," the robot plays songs from the attached Android device and dances along with the beat. Thanks to its built-in camera, the robot can also determine if the track it has selected is getting the party going or not and can switch up the song accordingly. If party-goers clap their hands to a beat, the Shimi will keep playing songs that correspond to the beat of the clapping.

The dancing droid also ensures that the music follows you no matter where you go in the room and tilts its head and speakers toward you as you move around. Stats for Dancing Smartphone Docks Trending: Older & Average
