The robot apocalypse may just start in a strip club. At the CeBIT expo in Hanover, German software developer Tobit put together a booth that features two pole dancing robots, egged on by a fellow robot DJ with a megaphone for a head. The two ladybots move and twist in time to the music, though the actual performance is surprisingly tame. This isn't the first time Tobit has brought the robots to the show, but this year featured updated models. "We changed them a little bit to make them more interesting," a Tobit representative told RuptlyTV. "We changed them to get more color, we changed them to get bigger breasts." According to the BBC, you can pick up a bot of your own for $39,500.
