Dongbu Robot said Monday it plans to launch robots that impersonate K-pop stars such as Girls’ Generation and Super Junior, by yearend.
The South Korean robot maker will form consortium with other robot makers Intelligent & Recreational Robot and Ocean Bridge E&T to develop the high-tech entertainment robots.
According to Dongbu, the robot “will be able to fully reenact movements and dances of stars” using more than 20 artificial motor “joints” installed all over its body. In addition, users can make the robots look like their favorite stars using attachable artificial skin.
Users will be able to download the latest songs and dances via android and apple application stores and link them to the robot, said the company.
