A 22-year-old man in Birmingham, England was arrested recently. His crime? Dressing up like a mannequin, stationing himself in women's restrooms at the local mall, and snapping smartphone pictures of their feet under the stalls. That's what we call a triple threat.
What would you spend $225,000 on? An animated android, styled after yourself? Starting in January the Japanese store Sogo & Seibu will begin taking pre-orders for these "Actroids." They may not walk, but they can move their upper bodies.
Problem: the clothes we buy off store mannequins never properly demonstrate our in-motion sexy strut. Solution: the Moving Mannequin runs in place, simulating being late to work or really needing to use the bathroom. (Hit the jump for more along with a glorious animated gif.)
