United Arrows – Marionettebot – Clothing store mannequin imitates movement

Another good example of the mix of technology, interesting ideas and craziness in Japan.

United Arrows, A popular clothing chain store in Japan created the Marionettebot – a store show window display mannequin in Shibuya, Tokyo that mimics movement.

A Kinect technology camera hooked up to the mannequin with 16 wires and a specially developed motor allow the mannequin to imitate the movements of anyone standing in front of it.

We’ll see if this unique technology application will increase interest in the store and will be applied in more places in the future.
