Japan stretches the definition of 'robot' with a ticket kiosk

Look, Japan, I know you have a thing for robots. It's awesome, really. Robots are very cool. But sometimes it seems like you're just trying too hard.

Like with this ticket kiosk that's supposedly a "robot." Clearly, it's just a ticket kiosk. It's not a robot. It can't walk around, it isn't sentient. It's just shaped like a robot, and we aren't fooled by it. Those legs are just for decoration. Weak, Japan. Give this thing laser cannons and a jetpack and then we can talk.
