Chatty – Japanese video mannequin

chatty05.jpgHere’s a link to a site that has a video of this mannequin. Basically it’s got a transparent face with a video projector projecting a real face on the transparency.

Strangely enough, back in the early 90’s after graduating from college, I interviewed with a company in Miami that invented this – but it really never went anywhere. But now it comes out in Japan and it’s suddenly “NEW”.

Check it out HERE.

    Kinda cool, yet kinda creepy…reminds me of the talking heads in the Disney Haunted Castle. I think those would’ve scared Jade chan when she was little..but then again she was afraid of the Easter Bunny too…
    Also cool that the company responsible is in Miami. 😀

    Very creepy…! So Jade chan was afraid of the Easter Bunny? Rei loves to watch Care Bears, but when we took her to ToysRus to see a “real” Care Bear, she freaked out. She did not even go near him. (-_-;)
