Is this what Walt Disney really had in mind? A nightclub in Japan, the nation which leads the world in robot technology, opened a new show to the public in which 'strippers' are gigantic animatronic models.
Mixing live dancers with four, 10-foot tall robots, the club, called Robot Restaurant, puts on an hour-long cabaret show, with several costume changes, which is causing a sensation in the infamous Kabuchiko red light district.
The ecdysiastic-style show, tamed by Western standards, reduces the robotic giants to platforms from which the real girls pander to the frenzied public, comprised of, naturally enough, mostly men.
After a brief intermission, the four "strippers" reappear in military garb atop tanks and toting guns. What this has to do with anything is uncertain, but, considering the 4,000 yen admission price ($50 USD), standing room only crowds are more than willing to fork it over.
How long until Disney World gets a hold of this new technology?
Here's the video. It's made by some early, lucky clubgoers, so skip to the 5 minute mark.
