HRP-4C Robot Dances, Sings, Frightens
Check out HRP-4C, the singing and dancing robot, as she performs with her backup dancers at Digital Content Expo. I can’t believe I missed this show. Personally, I find the divabot, as they are calling her, to be totally horrifying: her (?) shrill singing voice, her giant hands, her sort-of-human/sort-of-robotic dance moves. This might sound weird, but I prefer the living flesh of her dancers. Still, I can certainly understand the savvy behind this kind of new pop star. No mental breakdowns. No late-night head-shaving expeditions. No substance abuse problems. And instead of paying for her penthouse suite, you can leave her in the trunk of your tour bus. I’m curious: Anyone know what she’s singing about? Tell us in the comments.
