Faceless Mannequins Strut Their Stuff
Japan's Flower Robotics has come up with mannequins that do a lot more than talking like the ones in Old Navy commercials. The full size Palette uses motion-capture technology to show off its fashion in a variety of poses when it suspects a human is near. Its "intelligent system" allows it to remember which poses the buyer liked best and so can duplicate them again. Both the full torso Palette and the smaller UT (upper torso) are available to rent starting at a cost of about $4,200.00.
