Manekin Robotto Walks the Runway

Talk about skinny! The Hyogo Prefectural Institute of Technology has unveiled its Manekin Robotto which is, in essence, a fashion model robot. At a height of 160cm and a weight of 30kg, the robot has 16 joints and motorized cylinders that allows it to cross and bend its legs. It is controlled by an SDcard with instructions, via a cell phone, or by PC. Made with an aluminum frame, the Manekin Robboto can grace your runway for a cool $940.00. We wonder if they make them in a healthier looking model.
