HRP-4C robot ready to put human fashion models out of work

Just in time for Fashion Week In Tokyo, Japan's National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology has unveiled the HRP-4C fashion model robot. As you can see in this video, the robot has a series of motors situated throughout its 5-foot tall, 95-pound body that give it a rather life-like appearance.

We've seen walking robots that look like Transformers wannabes, and we've seen android models that essentially function like animatronic toys, but the look of HRP-4C truly begins to take us into Ghost In The Shell territory. The HRP-4C is scheduled to command the catwalk next week during Tokyo's five-day fashion extravaganza.
