Robot fashion model

Those Japanese robots lead busy lives. First working as  a secretary, then a school teacher, and how a bridal fashion model!

Designer Yumi Katsura used the humanoid robot Miim to model a wedding dress from her latest Paris collection. HRP-4C, or “Miim” for short, told a stunned audience she was very happy to be wearing the wedding dress.

Watch the video on MSNBC.
