Murasaki Shikibu, famously known for penning The Tale of Genji,
practically has goddess status in Japan. For those who scoff at such a
statement, just take a look at the robot above. The MURASAKI stands in
at 31-centimeters tall and weighs 1.5-kilograms (3.3-pounds), and while
the design is subtle, this gal still demands respect. Reportedly, the
bot is powered by NiMH batteries, waltzes about on two wheels and
sports an 8-axis system for moving her neck and arms. We’re hearing
conflicting reports about it actually being on sale or simply being a
prototype, but we’re sure the misdirection is all part of the allure
that makes her so irresistible.
