Pole Dancing Robot: The Latest Fetish To Hit London?
While pole dancing is a time-honored tradition in many clubs in England, the latest fetish to hit the country may be a pole dancing robot, which has all the moves, just without the skin and sexiness.
The new innovation was premiered at Major London Tech Startup Event “Inspiration Centraal” in a theme dubbed “schexy tech,” which saw the robots sliding up and down poles to the delight of the crowd.
The event, which ran for eight days, was staged to celebrate the UK launch of Dutch VPS hosting and domain name company, TransIP, which is the biggest provider of hosting services in the Holland.
TransIP CEO Jeroen Hüpscher said at the event to reporters, “We chose Shoreditch and Tech City quite deliberately as our new home, as we are a fan of London’s growing stature as an international technology hub, but frankly our expectations have been exceeded by the level of engagement we’ve experienced from the startup community in this beautiful city.”
“We’ve been blown away by the reaction to our event, the level of attendance and the infectious enthusiasm for building a vibrant and successful startup ecosystem. There can be no doubt that London – and in particular East London – is the startup capital of Europe. We’re looking forward to helping London consolidate this status by continuing to give startups the technology infrastructure they need to realize their visions. This is the exciting bit for us as a provider.”
While the robots were the main event at the show, the suggestion of them becoming some kind of fetish are a little far-fetched, as the organizers displayed them more as a talking point than anything else.
Nevertheless, especially in a place like England, one never knows what the next fetish might be, so the robots do have a chance of becoming the next big craze.[fblike]
