A clothing store mannequin that imitates your movements

We're not entirely sure if United Arrows' new MarionetteBot makes mannequins more or less creepy, but it's certainly attracting attention. To make it work, the popular Japanese clothing chain equipped a mannequin with a series of motors and 16 wires that are guided by a Kinect. By standing and moving in front of the MarionetteBot, window shoppers can control its movements.

It's a bit slow and limited, but United Arrows has certainly taken the mannequin concept to the next level.
