This is a video of the Marionettebots made for a United Arrows fashion store in Japan. Using a Kinect, the marionette robots mimic whatever movements passerbys make. Can you make them touch themselves? Probably, but that would mean YOU'RE touching yourself and risking a visit from mall security. I've got this. *stabbing myself* Did it...did it work? "No, but you are bleeding pretty bad." I...see the light. In Victoria's Secret. Somebody drag me over there and let me die amongst the panties like I've always dreamed of.

Hit the jump for a video of the bots miming.

Thanks to Gary, who once saw a guy punch a mime in Paris. Now that's romantic.
