Just a few days ago we covered this HRP-4C Fembot singing for her supper (3Yen / 10/15/2010) and now Miss HRP-4C has human backup chorus mimicking her herky-jerky moves at the Digital Contents Expo in Tokyo on October 17, 2010 using software called “Choreonoid” (choreograph + humanoid) from Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology.

  1. Ha. Just give me a robogirl with adjustable passion levels, a pulse that can be felt, plenty of rotating motion at the groin, and an adjustable way to control the body temperature and I wouldn’t bother to look at the typical bitch here in the States (although maybe Japan is better, femalewise).

  2. Damn… you even felt the need to put a wiki link to Kraftwerk… thanks for making me feel th3 0ld…

    (Quite some walking cadavers in the y00m4ns backup dancers…)

    Kraftwerk is about as old skool you can get and still be in the post Buddy Holly era.

    You meant to type “wanking cadavers”, right? It’s nearing Halloween.

  4. in case you missed that detail when you wuz dere too buzy boning anything with a skirt (youth and all and no risk to fall on a scottish man…), we don’t haz halloween… We got Toussaint (all saint) were we go to cemetery to clean the tombs and put flowers, there is absolutely nothing happy or festiv init. It’s more depressive and sordid in fact…

  5. Robots and Humans Dancing Together – The World is Getting Weirder (video)

    The real story isn’t how smoothly the HRP-4C moves, however, it’s that the robot can interact with humans for entertainment in a way that’s watchable. Although her part is simplified, the HRP-4C is performing real choreography. The routine was created by performer/dancer SAM, a member of the band TRF – a well known name in Japan and abroad. The HRP-4C’s singing voice is produced via Yamaha’s Vocaloid software, which is becoming a new standard for synthetic music, and is used in popular songwriting software the world over. This is real art. A little basic, perhaps, but real art. As robots improve in quality, we’ll only see more of this blending of machines and humans for performance. Previously, and even now, such dancing displays have been appreciated more for their novelty than their quality. Eventually, however, we’ll have robots that can dance and sing with humans on equal footing. Keep up the good work, HRP-4C, in another decade you could be headlining with robot Beyonce.
