Japans robot fashion model HRP-4C makes debut on the catwa

The appearance was a little bit of an anticlimax. Ever since its developers, Japans National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, said last week that it would be appearing in a fashion show many have been expecting to see it stride down the runway modeling the latest fashions. On Monday it wasnt even wearing any clothes. Instead its grey plastic body armor -- almost universally likened to that of a Star Wars Stormtrooper by reporters -- was all it was showing off.
