By year’s end Dongbu Robot plans to launch robots that impersonate K-Pop Stars Girl’s Generation and Super Junior. Sadly, not into outer space where they could act as ambassadors to the dance loving aliens of other planets but on Earth, where they will just annoy people.
According to Dongbu, the robot ‘will be able to fully reenact movements and dances of stars’ using more than 20 artificial motor ‘joints’ installed all over its body. In addition, users can make the robots look like their favourite stars using attachable artificial skin.
Users will be able to download the latest songs and dances via Android and Apple application stores and link them to the robot, said the company.
Kids today don’t know anything about real music. Dancing Coke Can, now that was a popstar. And he didn’t need any apps. Just some batteries and a beat.
