Korean Android gets to “walk” the runway, too

EVE-fashion-headerSouth Korea’s Yongsan National Museum had a fashion show this Saturday, August 29th 2009 – that featured a robot model posing on the catwalk in designer Lee Young’s latest threads.

Though this move mirrors the recent appearance of the Japanese android HRP-4C appearing in a fashion show and later in a wedding dress, EVE (the android developed by KITECH) doesn’t actually walk as it is not a biped.  The dress hides the robot’s wheeled base.  Earlier this year EVE participated in a short stage play alongside one of KITECH’s decidedly less human robots, SeRoPi.  A few more photos after the break.
