CEATEC: Yamaha HRP-4C robot adds singing to its arsenal

This week's CEATEC conference in Tokyo revealed Yamaha's updated version of its HRP-4C robot. In addition to a new, more anime-friendly look the robot now sings requests sent to it via iPhone.

So in addition to stealing the jobs of human catwalk queens, the Yamaha robot can get started on putting all those auto-tuned human pop artists on the unemployment line. You can see the haunting and creepy video of the HRP-4C robot singing in Japanese here.
