FINALLY! Pole-Dancing Robots Debut
The sleek, white, life-sized humanoids, with camera-shaped lights as heads, gyrate suggestively to the music, provided by a third “DJ” robot, with a megaphone for a head, who bops around the stage in time to the beat.
The trio were manufactured from old car parts, explained Julian Hangschlitt, 19, who described himself as “event manager by day and part-time DJ by night.”
“Last year, we had a pair of real dancers. This year, we thought, ‘well, we’re coming to CeBIT, it’s a tech fair, we should have some robots instead’,” he added.
The “dancers”, designed by British robot-maker-cum-artist Giles Walker, are driven by old car motors and their moves are controlled by computer via wireless technology.
Wireless SEXY technology!
Now that 42,000 event-goers have gotten a taste of those sweet, sweet robotic ladyparts, demand for these electronic vixens is sure to soar through the roof. This is how the Terminator franchise started, right?
A pole-dancing robot will set you back about $40,000. But when you think about how much money you’ll be able to make uploading Xtube videos of yourself doing the robot to the robot, it kind of sounds like the most sensible financial investment you’ll ever make, right?
