Super Junior and Girls’ Generation robots to be produced

Dongbu Group, a conglomerate, will be releasing robots that look like and dance like K-pop idols, such as Girls’ Generation and Super Junior, via one of their divisions, Dongbu Robots.

On June 25th, Dongbu Robots, Intelligent Recreational (IR) Robots, and Ocean Bridge E&T came together for a project titled ‘K-pop Star Robots’. Through this project, the collaborating companies are scheduled to launch a series of dancing K-pop robots by the end of this year.

‘K-pop Star Robots’ is the next project Dongbu Robots will be working on after the April release of their intelligent and service robot series, ‘Hovis Eco’. The company plans on producing this new line of robots with upgraded functions that allow them to accurately reenact the dance movements of K-pop idols.

The robots will be equipped with a high-power motor, which will enable them to bend at 20 of their joints, from their necks, their waists, their thighs, to their hips, to ensure flexible and free movement. In addition, the robots will also be made to look like the idol group members themselves!

What other idol group robots would you like to see?

AKP, Nate, Hankook

IDK what to say~

Is this a joke? Since when have we advanced so much that we can make dancing robots that are cheap enough for a fandom where the average wage is "Daddy give me money".

They'll probably be those cheap looking plastic things for kids.

I wish I was witty enough to make an appropriate Seohyun joke.

I thought a whole load of them were robots anyway?

No but seriously, I am genuinely perplexed at all of this.

krobwell 26th-Jun-2012 03:59 pm (UTC)
Onew robot. No shame.
sxechiru 26th-Jun-2012 06:03 pm (UTC)
Only if it had Dubulge.
yesungholic 26th-Jun-2012 04:12 pm (UTC)
....I can already picture it
"Dad, lend me money!"
"I want to buy Siwon."

....that sounds wrong at so many levels.

"are you going to have sex with those robots?" "no. I'm going to make them fuck each other"

Well, aren't they ambitious? Like really? A robot that can dance like K-idols and do chores around the house. And they're gonna mass produce it and hoping someone will buy?
Well, I guess we all have something to look forward to, by this end of the year. Lets see if we all be in awe or will be LMAO-ing over creepy-fail-looking robot :3
aeries_amethyst 26th-Jun-2012 05:19 pm (UTC)
Well...I'm speechless right now. As much as I love my KPOP idols, I don't know of this is cool or creepy O___O
kanbinayume 26th-Jun-2012 05:34 pm (UTC)
