'Smart Doll' is a line of international 60-centimeter vinyl fashion dolls created by Danny Choo of Culture Japan. Unlike collectible fashion dolls for adults that are only meant to be admired from afar, these dolls are more than just decor pieces to fill one's home. The dolls are designed to play well with technology; for instance, the dolls include built-in phone-charging USB ports, and they may also be used as a GPS device, for teaching the Japanese language or to provide a social media user with Twitter and Facebook notifications.

The high-tech articulated fashion dolls recently made an appearance at 2016 Penang Fashion Week, featuring many diverse models and outfits inspired by cultures around the world.

Since these high-fashion dolls could be used as part of one's day-to-day life, they are sold alongside a line of streetwear-inspired Smart Doll Apparel, which is "designed to be taken outdoors."
