SheFinds News: Moving Mannequins Turn Heads
February 14, 2006
Window shopping just got a lot more exciting. A Hollywood-renowned robotics and special effects developer has launched Moving Mannequins, a company that will make movie-quality mannequins for the fashion retail industry. Say goodbye to those faceless, featureless mannequins traditionally seen in stores; these new models boast skin texture and pigmentation that allow them a human skin appearance, and have prosthetic eyes, which further enhance their lifelike quality. Moving Mannequins’ Super Model achieves its realistic look through the use of high-tech silicone rubber finishes and advanced robotics. A life-like mannequin may sound a little creepy and didn’t Kim Cattrall refine that concept in the 80’s? But you have to give the company credit, who wouldnâ€™t stop and stare at a moving mannequin wearing a really cute outfit? It’s at least as memorable as the animated Christmas windows at Macy’s.
