Japanese Robot Takes A Turn On The Catwalk
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Japan is home to half the world's industrial robots, and some could star in fashion shows. A video shows a woman in silver and black strolling toward the camera - the HRP-4C humanoid robot. It - or rather, she - has straight, black hair. And if her face has no expression, isn't that what runway models do? The model's creators admit she's wobbly. And there's another problem: She has yet to make the cover of "Maxim."
It's MORNING EDITION.
