Kinect Enabled Mannequin Mimics Shoppers [video]

Window shoppers crossing Japanese clothing retailer United Arrows’ showroom in central Tokyo will have the pleasure to “play” with a mannequin that has been programmed to mimic the actions of viewers. Marionettebot, as it is called, uses a Kinect to copy movements, walk, move its hands, feet and even jump. 16 wires attached to various points on the robot body allow it to be controlled somewhat like a puppet and be an attraction for people on the street.
