Japan's HRP-4C targets the male audience
A new robot developed in Japan can walk,talk and able to manage self introduction just like a fashion model
The robot known as HRP-4C may go on sale next year, and is seen as being a “walking mannequin”, with sales to department stores hoped for. No likely price is mentioned.
The unit was developed by a governmental robotics lab, under the auspices of the National Institute of Advanced Science and Technology (AIST). It is 158cm tall and weighs 43kg, being capable of operating on battery power for 20 minutes.
Japanese researchers have obsessed over none-too-practical (but very impressive) bipedal robots, with androids as the distant goal, we see a more utilitarian approach which is happy to incorporate all manner of animal and mechanical motion to get the job done efficiently.
