Robot Model Walks in Japan

The very livelihood of living, breathing models may be threatened. For in Japan a five foot two robot model named Miim walked in Yumi Katsura's show. Modeling a wedding dress, Miim even took "realistic sidelong glances" at the front row. (If we may, that's not very realistic, since models don't look to the side when they walk down a runway, generally, but we'll excuse Miim only because she's a robot.) Miim's developer hopes she will continue working in fashion and entertainment. Hey, at this early stage she might even work for free. -The Cut
