Quickie of an android ballerina, waiting for the show to start up.

The Baletistino model uses a patent-pending joint structure with a lightweight frame to make it the most flexible android model there is. However, they’re somewhat more fragile* than other droids; the joints are quite likely to become permanently warped with overuse and the frame is subject to cracking far more easily than most other designs. This makes them useless for anything other than entertainment, and poorly maintained Baletistinoj (such as the second-hand ones commonly used in cheap off-off-Broadway productions) have been known to malfunction in the middle of a performance.

*bio-dancers do not have this problem.
