Robot to do its little turn on the catwalk

“Next up, the always lovely HRP-4C modeling the very best in this year’s faux industrial designs for the discerning robot. Soft curves accentuate the feminine side, while polished chrome reminds us that this line is as functional as it is sexy!”

The HRP-4C, seen here in the nude, is a walking robot designed to model clothing on fashion runways. With 30 motors in her body, and 8 motors in her face to produce a limited set of expressions, she looks a lot better than that robot schoolmarm. HRP-4C looks pretty good while standing still, but it looks like it has a long way to go before it masters that sashay that is the trademark of runway models everywhere.
