Dancing Bots

Dancing Bots 120210

I have been spending way too much time scouring SL Marketplace. I have found three items there that you possibly could find useful ... maybe ... if you are lonely, own an empty club or need a special prop in a show. These are dancing bots of various forms.

The first are called "Dancing Ghosts" and are part of a series of dancing creatures made by Alisa Ultsch.

You can also dance with the male ghost, although it's a very stiff dance.

Next, is a robot belly dancer with lousy dance moves and no discipline. She moves around and is a bit jumpy. Also, she looks to have a terminal case of cellulite. But, if you need a few extra belly dancers, this may help.

Last is Dancing Jelly Beans. You get six of them in the pack. You look cute when you hop on, for example, here are Riddle and I in Jelly Beans. Unfortunately, although the dance in it is synced, it is not too good.

Since the Dancing Jelly Beans are modify and copy, you can remove a jelly bean and turn it into a cute costume and dance with your HUD.

If you find more dancing bots, let me know.

  1. Nice find Nottoo. Alisha's bots are fun. As you can see in the photo I sent, I have a couple of the palace guards, who salute as I approach, and a maid who curtsies. I too was a little disappointed in the dancers though I think they are a great idea. Maybe you can inspire Alisha to improve the animations. The idea that you can have several bot couples dancing in your ballroom, and that an avatar without a partner can "hop on" to replace one of the dancers is pretty cool.
    Alisha, if you haven't spoken with her, is very nice. I am sure she would be interested in your input. She says she has incorporated many user suggestions into her bot line. I assume you have been to the in world store. If not, you must go. All the bots are roaming around and she has several floors of really nice period costumes too. The store is a great resource for performers.
