"Mannequins have been static but this will pose for the nearest person by sensing his or her position," robot designer Tatsuya Matsui told a news conference Monday.
Palette will double-up as an industrial spy, with the maker planning to program it to judge the age and sex of shoppers and even identify the bags they are carrying and pass along the information to stores for marketing purposes.
Otsuka said it was "safer that the robot stays in a showcase."
"Consumer attention would be diverted to the face if there were one," said Matsui.
Also, cower in fear of Posy the Mouthless Flower Girl!
"i'll have to freeze you"("box" from "logan's run")
"Fish, plankton, sea greens, and protein from the sea!"
Concidence? You decide.
This is beyond terrifying.
I think I saw Posy moving around in one of the deleted scenes from Lost in Translation. The scene was called "Charlotte with Robots" or some such.
please stop exploring your sexuality, it really freaks us out.
posting robot mannequins
your pot is blacker than my kettle.
though a meat mannequin that could make stabby motions with a big knife...
Whoa!! Kind of creepy, in a cute non-human way...
i want one.
That white death shroud posy model is the freakiest thing I've seen in years. Something about its ghost-like yet intensely inhuman quality chills my spine. Thanks for seeding future nightmares.
I presume you've seen "Oh! Mikey"
For all your night terror needs.
