You know that asshole at the office who seems to repeat everything you say just to be a douche bag? Sometimes it even seems like he’s walking in step with you. What the hell is with that guy anyway? The geniuses over at the Korean Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) in conjunction with Samsung Electronics created Mahru, the robotic version of that guy you really can’t stand.
Mahru mimics your every move in real-time using motion-capturing technology. Well, at least the arms move in real-time. The legs still have a little catching up to do. One day this little guy is going to make choreography a much simpler occupation. Hit the jump for a video demonstration featuring all of the Engrish you can handle.
