Made in China dancing robots have been a hit this year. The robots in the video were designed and made by the Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

They can recognize up to nine different songs, including "Gangnam Style" and "Zui Xuan Minzu Feng" (the Coolest Ethnic Trend), and dance in coordinated steps.

The robots made an appearance at the China National Robotics Development Forum 2016 in Chongqing.

China's robot industry is developing quickly, helping make the country the world's largest industrial robot market.

In 2014, robot sales rose 27 percent worldwide but increased 54 percent in China. In 2018 China is forecast to account for more than one-third of the industrial robots installed worldwide, according to the International Federation of Robotics.
