Winking and waving their way around Tokyo’s red light district are four ginormous sexy female robots, who are the latest addition to the galactic style cabaret on show in the city’s Robot Restaurant.
Towering at 3.6 metres high and operated by bikini clad girls, the robots are donned in sexy warrior apparel and perform a series of expressions at the flick of a joy stick.
Seated half way up the robots, the skimpy Japanese waitresses fly around the restaurant in an hour long fighting performance, all in a bid to inject some life into a half-baked male culture badly in need of some garish cabaret sparkle.
The female robots, who perform to the tunes of traditional drums mixed with Lady Gaga, took three years to make and cost $125.8 million.
The Robot Restaurant owner, who The Fox Gazette suspects is a naughty, naughty man, says “the concept behind this restaurant is fighting, feisty females, and the robots are part of that theme”.
The lower half of these towering technological sex symbols resemble the iconic Japanese character Gundam, while the curvaceous upper half looks somewhat like the Amazons, the mythical female fighting tribe of old.
Dr Henry Hologram, lead researcher at the Massachusetts Market for Machinery (MMM), says a bit of automated tickling, waving, winking, laser beams, and galactic snuggery is just what’s needed in this world of chaste, erotically dysfunctional puritanism.
“Robots are cool, and hot”, he says.
