OriHime Robot Strikes Sexy Robot Poses
December 27th, 2011
The OriHime robot was developed in Japan by Kentaro Yoshifuji, an engineering student at Waseda University, and it attempts to takes the robotic form to a sexy new level. While it has a more feminine form than the typical ‘bot, it definitely won’t be putting Victoria’s Secret models out of a job anytime soon.
The OriHime ‘bot is actually supposed to be an emotive avatar for video chats, but can strike some sexy robo-poses controlled by the party on the other end of the line. I suppose that’s cool, but somewhat freaky, if you find it attractive this way. It’s really designed to act as a remote “friend” for lonely people, like children in hospitals, and not robo-perverts though.
Do you think that robots will take over for runway models? Well, not anytime soon as we all know that simply walking on two feet is still a real challenge for most robots.
