London Fashion Week runway went cyberpunk when a robot was rolled down the runway as part of a collaboration between Silicon Valley's OhmniLabs Robotics Company and Los Angeles-based designer Honee Persona.
The robot was covered in crystals.
"I want to bring an awareness that AI, as wonderful as technology is, it can never replace human beings. We have the energy. We are the creator," said Persona.
Omnilabs' spokesperson, Dhana Pawar said the event was a great showcase, adding to uses such as senior care, healthcare, education, the uses for robots that people already love.
"This is a great example of how we can expand robotics into fashion as well," said Pawar.
Not everyone was impressed, with one attendee saying the robot had looked like "an iPad on a stand".
