Before anyone freaks out, no, the Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club in Las Vegas hasn’t replaced their dancers with robots. But robot strippers are currently shaking their … um, parts … at the club, a move meant to appeal to the attendees of CES (the Consumer Electronics Show). Sapphire’s owner, Peter Feinsten, suggested to the Daily Beast that the futuristic fembots would help attract a diverse CES crowd. “If you’re six people from a company and there’s two women and four guys, you can still here and have some fun and see the robots and not feel like you have to be part of a strip club,” he said.
Humorous signs accompanied “tip jars” near the robots; one read “Need $$ for batteries,” another stated, “M.I.T. bound,” while fake cash filled their garters.
