Eager Co. Ltd. & Aki Co. Ltd. are ready to launch their cardboard mannequin robot system, D+ropop, which they are calling the world’s most eco-friendly robot. The name derives from D type cardboard, robot (ro), and pop (point of purchase). With 8 servo motors in the neck, shoulders, and elbows, D+ropop displays clothing with a series of eye-catching movements that put standard mannequins to shame.
Besides using recycled materials, the system has a number of benefits which include: lower cost compared to other robotic mannequins (such as those offered by Flower Robotics); light weight (4kg); printable surfaces allow company logos to be displayed; customizable motion routines; and a variety of configurations are possible such as the “centaur” body.
