[school-discuss] Robot Fashion Models

If any of your students have shown aspirations
towards a modeling career, they should be made
aware of the ongoing research in humanoid robots
that will probably result in people losing out
to machines in this field. Some of the relevant
work is reported here:


The most recent humanoid design that I've heard
of is the HRP-4C, which runs ART-Linux 2.6 as its
primary OS. It seems to have some interesting
capabilities considering it only runs on an old
Pentium M at 1.6GHz. Rumor has it that upcoming
models may have multi-processor design and much
more sophisticated algorithms.

The descendants of the department-store mannequins
will take over the world. . . . :-)
