Look! The mannequin is moving!

OK, this is not a scene from a horror movie. This is an Android mannequin at Takashimiya department store in Japan. It is created by robotics guru Hiroshi Ishiguro. The humanoid has a range of facial expression and movements which are triggered by sensor when a shopper is nearby.

Looks creepy. I hope the power down the mannequin and cover it at night.

What do you think? Would you be buying more stuff from a retail shop if they use an Android mannequin?
