Wow. All kidding aside, this is really cool (not apparent from the video)...

According to this article, OriHime is designed to act as an `avatar` for human operators, who generally would be children confined to hospitals for treatment, so they could watch and interact with the people in their lives outside their hospital room. The intent behind the design was to create a robot avatar capable of a variety of nonverbal expressions/gestures.

Despite appearances in this video (at least to me), the robot is about two feet tall.

And - @Swash - I thought it was stop-motion too. But, having read that article, I`m more convinced it`s not.

I`m not convinced that it`s not stop motion animation.

Considering it has no hands, no mouth, and no other "useful parts," I`d say it`s about as crappy as you can get!

It has no fingers, and as far as I know that`s one of the more difficult parts of a robot to make
