Have you ever seen models walking on a catwalk? Another case if the model is a robot. HRP-4C, a fashion robot model that can talk like real human, developed by AIST (National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology) in Japan, costs £150,000 or $210,685. With 30 motor activators in the body, this woman robot with 158 centimeter (62 inch) height and weight of 43 kilograms (95 lbs) can walk in several poses.
The woman robot has black hair with 8 internal motors in her face, so that she can show some emotional expression like angry or shock. The HRP-4C robot is scheduled to start her first debut in a fashion show in Tokyo next week, or on March 23.
Although it is a robot, the HRP-4C has graceful side of women, can blink her eyes and make sound. According to the developer team in Japan, the robot is far more perfect compare to the other robots, and probably can replace the human models in fashion show catwalk.
