SHIRI: Robotic Buttocks to Represent Emotion

I can't figure out if this is a joke or not, but reportedly, Shiri is the first robotic humanoid buttocks designed to represent emotions with the "visual and tactual transformation" of butt muscles. At about 2:45 you can see the operator smack the robotic bum and the "muscles" tense up. Uhm.
