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?
