Palette the Robotic Mannequin

Mannequin_232 Creepy! A Japanese firm has developed a mannequin robot that can strike a pose for customers, while they spy on who they are and what they are buying. Sounds like a scene from Minority Report (you know the Gap scene) or that 80's movie Mannequin. Argghhh! That is all we need, a nosy mannequin to annoy us while we shop. What is the deal with these stupid marketing schemes? "Increasing customers "appetite to buy"? Clearly, they keep making decisons like these, we may have to opt for shopping at home, and what fun is that? (*pout*)
