A cool robot caught my eye the other day, though it turned out it was actually just a prop for a J-POP music video. In the video for their new song “LOCK ON”, which debuted in February 2012, members of a boy band called KAT-TUN look wistfully at a robot in suspended animation in between dance sessions.
Regrettably the video producers weren’t anywhere near as ambitious as Chris Cunningham, the director of the famous video for Bjork’s “All is full of love”. Still, even if it doesn’t really do much of anything its simple but effective design is worth checking out. In fact, it looks like it could be the grown up version of Flower Robotic’s Posy or the CG cartoon character Drossel.
A selection of screen captures follow after the break.
