Store Mannequins Mimic Shopper Movements [Video]
'Marionettebots' in the window of a store in Shibuya, Japan create a whole new level of interaction between window-shopper and display.
Remember that movie Mannequin, with Kim Cattrall before she put the sex in Sex and the City? She plays a mannequin who comes to life. The plot is nonsensical and silly, but it did make one wonder what happened in department stores at night. In Japan, a nation obsessed with robots, the mannequins may not come to life, but they sure act like it.
