Robot Debuts At Fashion Show
April 4, 2009

March 24, in Japan, a robot was introduced during a fashion-show.  Why a fashion-show?  Don’t know, reportedly, she walk on catwalk with models also.

The robot is named HRP-4C.  It look closer to humans (or anime characters from video games) than other robots I have seen the pictures of, even with the Storm Trooper attire.  The height is 60+ inches, it can walk around and also talk – the lips actually moves.  But the movement is still kind of robot-ish creepy, as you see in the video below.  One report said the “skeleton” (faceless) version can be bought for US$200 thousand.
