Smart Doll – The First Robotic Barbie-like Doll

There needs to be more girls in engineering. It’s too bad that girls are not much interested in robotics so I hope this new robotic barbie doll will spark young women to start a career in robotics.

The first motion test ever of Smart Doll – the interactive line of robot dolls that my company Culture Japan is developing.
Today we look at the shoulder, elbow and neck servomotors only. The next video we will show waist, wrists and thigh servos in action.
We have not done the human robotics yet which means she looks kinda stiff at the moment – but that will be fixed and she will look very natural indeed!

The doll is modeled after the Culture Japan mascot character Mirai Suenaga who you can find out more about below.
