Japan's next supermodel is a robot

HRP-4C is perfect model


Japanese boffins have created a robot which they think is good enough to hit the catwalk as a model. (And probably cheaper, sub.ed.)

The HRP-4C robot is 158cm tall and weighs 43kg including battery and fails a bit because she is a bit short.  However she does move correctly and would be a good clothes horse if she ever got a job as a model.

HRP-4C moves like a model and has a fairly creepy real look to her if she had skin we guess there would be a large number of geeks who would try to offer her a date.
