I Heart Hello Kitty.

Kokoro, (which means "Heart" by the way) is subdivision of "Hello Kitty" creators, Sanrio . They specialize in the design and manufacture of robots and unveiled its new Actroid DER2 feminine guide robot at Sanrio headquarters in Tokyo on October 4.

Actroid’s limbs, torso and facial expressions are controlled by a system of actuators powered by pneumatic pressure. Once programmed, she is able to choreograph her motions and gestures with her voice.

Kokoro intends to rent Actroid DER2 to companies and events. The basic rental fee is expected to be 400,000 yen (US$3,500) for 5 days, plus extra fees for technical support, delivery and choreography changes.

I wonder what "choreography changes" some companies might be requesting?
