MOF17_2

Speecys, a Tokyo based company founded by Tomoaki Kasuga, is planning to released the world’s first 3D motion figure named “Model MOF17 Pro”. The figure has full range of motion and is able to move and even dance. Kasuga is the inventor of Sony’s popular robo-dog AIBO, which simulates actual canine behavior. The figure stand 43cm tall and has 34 points of articulation. It has RaspberryPi3 (with Linux) as its CPU, and is able to make dance moves using the “MikuMikuDance” software. This is the same software used for the virtual idol Hatsune Miku and the other Vocaloids. But don’t think that you’ll be adding this mini robo-cutie to your collection. She comes with a 980,000 yen price tag (that’s $9400, by the way). MOF17 Pro will be displayed from October 31 to November 2 at the Business Frontier Fair in Tokyo.
