Pole Dancing Robots Appear At Technology Trade Fair

Robots On The Pole

Women in tech have got more to worry about than sexist attitudes and an abysmal dude-to-lady ratio: at a tech trade show in Germany on Sunday night, there were pole-dancing robots. The bots, which were designed by artist Giles Walker, rent out for $40,000 apiece.  Two of the bots shook their silicone tits at the CeBIT Expo on Sunday night at an event where the British and German Prime Ministers appeared, oddly enough. I support pole dancers, but even in robot form they aren’t appropriate entertainment for a tech event. Who thought there would be a way to sexualize women at random tech events in a way even worse than booth babes? [Fast Company]

In my nightmares, this is what the future of mankind looks like. Like, 347 years from now, the aliens are going to come and turn us all into cyborgs and force us to act out our archaic sexual practices in museums. (This is actually a window display at a Russian department store. I have no idea what it’s selling.) [Copyranter]

Wish List: A $400,000 Cookie-Baking Robot

 

It’s good to know the folks at MIT have the best minds of our generation focused on what’s really important: a robot who can bake cookies named BakeBot. Don’t expect your own private C3PO to be baking a fresh batch of Snickerdoodles anytime soon, though. The price tag on a cookie-baking robot is $400,000, The New York Times reports. The only person who is going to have a BakeBot will be P. Diddy. [YouTube via New York Times] Keep reading »

Kristin Cavallari Is Turning Into That Weird Svedka Vodka Robot

At least that’s what I pictured when I heard Cavallari would be strutting down the runway modeling a glass bikini designed by SKYY Vodka and Diesel to kick off Miami Swim Week. Good look with that, Kristin. You know what they say about people in glass bikinis … they shouldn’t get really drunk on SKYY Vodka and throw rocks and fall down on the runway. Or something like that.

Watch Out, Meryl Streep. There’s A New Robot Actress In Town

Meet Geminoid-F, the robot actress out of Tokyo looking to steal movie roles from human actresses in Tinseltown. The lady bot has already landed her first role in a stage play in the role of an android, which shouldn’t be much of a stretch. The ‘bot is puppetered by a real person back stage who controls the techno-actress’s voice and movements. Her costar says she seems a bit “distant.” Must be all those microchips getting in the way of real emoting. [Gawker] Keep reading »

Gotta Have It: Robot Hair Washer

So, I hate showering. I find it tedious and boring and it’s hard to do my usual multi-tasking in there. But unfortunately, while I can get away with ye olde whore’s bath on off-shower days, my hair can get a little lackluster. That is why I want, nay, need, this robot hair washer (currently on display at Panasonic’s HQ in Osaka, Japan) installed in my apartment. I could lay there while the robot does its thing on my scalp, my hands free to channel surf, read, masturbate, pet Lucca, and post on The Frisky. The only question is — does it do head massages?

Woman Hopes Wife Will Live Forever In The Form Of Creepy Robot, Bina48

What has your S.O. done for you lately? Martine Rothblatt commissioned a $125,000 interactive robot — actually, just a robot head — of her wife, Bina Rothblatt, so that she may live foreveeeeer. A Vermont-based robotics group created Bina48, a robot with a Jane Lynch ‘do, rubbery skin, and the most vacant eyes since Charles Manson. Keep reading »

Japanese Couple Married By A Robot


A couple in Tokyo was recently married by, get this, a robot “priest.” The I-Fairy robots are traditionally used to give tours around museums and science exhibitions, but now I guess they can add wedding officiant to their job summary. The couple met when the bride, Satoko Inoue, worked at the company that makes the I-Fairy robots and the groom, Tomohiro Shibata, came in as a customer. They credit the robot for bringing them together, so they found it fitting that the I-Fairy would perform the ceremony. The couple say they just want people to see robots as a normal part of life and not merely as bits of metal and plastic. Fine, but where’s the romance?! The couple didn’t even touch each other during the service! Perhaps that’s just a cultural difference, but if that’s what our future with robots looks like, no thanks!

What If Roxxxy, The World’s First Sex Robot, Got In A Fight With Andy, The Most Advanced Sex Robot?

It’s that time of year again, people. No, not time to hibernate in your apartment with Netflix and a down comforter. It’s time for the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas. The big buzz at this year’s expo is Roxxxy TrueCompanion, who’s being billed as the world’s first sex robot. Not only does she come with a programmable personality—Frigid Farrah, Wild Wendy, Mature Martha, etc—but she can speak and listen, and actually learns what her owner likes and dislikes. She can even have an orgasm. Roxxxy costs $7,000 and goes on sale next week, and she kind of makes Andy—the world’s most advanced sex android who has real hair, real pubes, and a functional G-Spot—look like a bargain at $3,820. For any ladies out there who find this idea even semi-appealing, fear not. TrueCompanion is currently working on a male sex robot as we speak. Just as long as the engineers aren’t working on something like a fully electric car! I just have one big starter question for people thinking of purchasing one of these robots. Do you store it in your closet? It’s not quite as explainable as the vibrator in the bedside table drawer. [PC Mag] Keep reading »
