In case you missed the innuendo, they were pole dancing robots.
The sleek, white, life-sized humanoids, with camera-shaped lights as heads, gyrated suggestively to music, provided by a third “DJ” robot, with a megaphone for a head, who bopped around the stage in time to the beat.
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.
