(Scroll down for video) Mannequins, are now becoming more than just dummies to be dressed by its owner, in order to display clothing. Now, robots are starting to communicate with customers.

In an effort to bring attention to the store and pull customers into the shop, one clothing store came up with an interesting idea, as they placed robotic mannequins in the window.

Whenever a person walks through the store the “MarionetteBots,” mimics the persons movements.

United Arrows, a clothing store located in the Tokyo airport, found a great way to get people to pay attention to the display windows.

They placed “MarionetteBots,” mannequins/robots in their window.

The robots were dressed with United Arrows clothing and placed in its storefront. Whenever a person walks through the store the “MarionetteBots,” mimics the person’s movements.

These unique mannequins have made many people stop at the store to see what the “MarionetteBots,” can do.

In the video below you can see people having good time getting the “MarionetteBots,” to do different moves like walking and waving its hand.
