I find this really creepy. I’m sure I saw something similar in a Dr Who episode. Japanese clothing retailer United Arrows has found a novel way to make customers stop and pay attention to their shop windows.
Using two ‘MarionetteBots’, these half mannequins-half robots are capable of mimicking the movements of customers that walk in front of the display windows.
It uses Kinect technology and wires, which allows the mannequins to copy the movement of any person—similar to a marionette.
It’s the laser death rays in their eyes that you have to watch out for.
