What robot strippers say about sexism, tech and the future

What robot strippers say about sexism, tech and the future



2018-01-12T18:30:02+0000

In Las Vegas during the technology show, robot strippers offered a window into technology’s gender fault lines — not to mention our robot future.

The robots served a racy but utilitarian function by drawing gawkers to the club, much the way provocatively clad “booth babes” lure CES visitors to wares on the convention floor.

Stay in school run for Congress and change the laws.

Is this an episode on MTV teen mom el paso edition

It’s district wide sponsored by Ysleta. Kindness awareness

Why they doing this now? They're like a month or 2 late aren't they? Lol anything to get out of school.

They're all giggling and laughing, listening to music ..... Shows they're just in it to hang out and miss the whole point of the walk out.

Wish I would have known! Could have set up a taco truck 😞

Keep on walking until you find a job.

You guys forgot :( 4/20 marks the anniversary of columbine shootong

Thanks students for remembering

They just wanna blaze let's be real

So they don't even have a high school diploma yet think they know everything.

I am happy for the kids who protecting Second Amendment

bet half of them have nooo idea what theyre walking out for smh

FYI pretty sure majority of these kids are under 18 need parents consent to record them. Just saying...

Wouldn't any of us have walked out given the opportunity??

That’s why they don’t know how to protest with respect

EP times grabbing headlines and not providing a full explanation

Mic is broken or something, audio is all messed up...

Very hard to make out what he was saying with all the messed up audio.

Civil Disobedience is a very important part of a democratic nation. GOOD FOR THEM‼️ I support these kids👍🏼

Schools are complaining about EOC scores and they're allowing this.

On their way to the mall, I bet!!

I Believe the schools know about the walk out

why walk when u can smoke and fly!!!! sorry i just wanted to be cool and say it

Is it the only high school doin this

Starting pitching is awesome but we need bullpen help BAD....Huston Street is a free agent and 2 years removed from a 40 save season and is healthy for the 1st time since that year

To those who want Tucker.....maybe you mean "Preston"? Is he going to be another JD Martinez that got away? 18 RBI's for the Braves, leading the NL. Who could've predicted that? But it's a nice problem to have---more MLB-caliber players than spots available.

Astros getting the bats heated up to match their great pitching!!!! But i'm watching Jake Marisnik and his 120AVG and wondering why Kyle Tucker is not brought up to take his spot???????

Incase no body looked, Astros starting pitchers are 1, 2&3, and think 6th in strikeouts in the American league. Also 1 and 2 in era.

Seems like some people on the site have nothing to say when they win. On another note, I like Fisher. But he needs some regular at bats to get out of whatever funk he is in. Let him to go down for a month and play everyday.

I think I love him....go Astros!

Glad their offense is coming back

Jordan Gaimes. Hi 😁🤷🏻‍♀️😂😂

I think Marisnik should sit down and have a talk with Reddick.

I don't think we were laughing about it when it happened, but I'm looking back on that Gattis triple play, and I can't help but shake my head and grin. Seeing the video, you can tell that was mad at himself for that totally bone-head move. If we lost that game, the team would never let him forget it. But now, we can laugh it off! #NeverSettle #HTownBaseball #WorldChamps

Playoffs gave Charlie Morton his swagger. I can't believe that I was very skeptical about when we first got him.

That's more like it!! Offense getting hotter, Morton dealing like the world champion he is, and big home runs from the boys! I want to see so much more of this when we take on the Rangers again!!! #NeverSettle #HTownBaseball

And I found out that a local radio station is carrying Astros games!!! No more satellite radio delay!!!

Starting pitching has been on 🔥 🔥 🔥

Uncle Charlie is made of steel! That is all. Correa too!

I know it's still early, but Charlie "Freakin" Morton needs to be on the short list for Cy Young candidates! He's busted out of the starting gates on fire and he's not playing around!!

Awesome game ! And Seattle’s outfielders also helped during the series.... i have to say that I was so happy Altuve got some nice at bats, and RBI’s , he was really needing that. He also got a bit of help from the outfielders on both doubles. Another team/outfielders, and those two could have been caught !

Charlie did great, and when he got hit on the arm and Carlos caught it for an out on Robinson Cano, and went right back to pitching! Amazing tough guy!

Morton is amazing! glad he was not hurt when that ball hit his arm!!!!!

Houston Astros! World Series Champions! GO ASTROS!

Charlie is a beast too.

Charlie Morton!!!!

Can we please bench Marisnick now?? 0 for 4... again

Charlie is on 🔥 Tony Sipp needs to be fired..the bats are coming alive..crazy misconception of outs on Gattis but we won!l Go Stros 🏆

Great game. Sipp and Rondon scared me.

Let's keep the winning streak to catch LAA

Get back to 1st in the West, where 1.5 back going into tonight.

Charlie isn't playing around this season!! He's mowing down opposing lineups like they were Little League!

Awesome game! Keep those bats going Astros!⚾️🔥

Great game! I just don’t like Rondon! Not a fan of Sipp either! I have a feeling neither will be here come the fall!

Sippy cup is frightful.

That's called a winning streak. It has happened before.

Outstanding guys, congratulations and keep up with your amazing performance🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

I like turtles

We were at this game today dressed in our Astros World Series Champions gear and had a blast screaming our heads off! Love our Astros, even if we do live in Seattle now!!🧡💙🧡💙🧡💙

WHAT THE HECK WAS GATTIS DOING ON THE BASES TODAY?! ..

Bats are starting to warm up. Great job today, Stros!!

Did gattis have forgetful moment when there was only 2 outs and he started to walk back to the dugout

Very crazy game Gattis..Charlie is throwing 🔥 throw him in on the Cy Young conversation..bats looking ready to blast into orbit! Go Stros! 🏆

The bats are starting to warm up, while the pitching continues to be stellar! Maybe this gets them kickstarted on a nice roll! #NeverSettle

I just want to say Charlie Morton is 6'4 as a pitcher and I heard he is 5'10 isn't that six inches and its suppose to be five Im watching again and whats with that bushy facial hair ew... Im wearing high pants too Wrangler fleece lined mens pants but they look better on woman I dont see a man wearing these 32/32 are like 30/33

Nice to see the bats wake up

It was the grasshoppers lol

Now we got the pitching and the fielding and the catching and the base running..World Series...Here We Come

Love my Astros! But why is Sipp still on the roster?

Houston Astros! World Series Champions! GO ASTROS!

Whoo Hoo!...Stros are back in true form and Charlie FREAKING Morton!....ERA 0.72 + a 98 mph fast ball along with his other awesome stuff.

Just need to cut down on the strikeouts

This starting pitch is crazy. 5 aces? Hahaha

The comments a few days ago, "They can't hit! They're doomed!" Yeah, not so much. Haha.

Beautiful swing and homerun by Reddick!!

oh yeah AND THE BATS WOKE UP

Jennifer Trahan Bourg looks like it was a crazy game last night.

Once the bats wake up, its gonna get really ugly #NeverSettle

Slow and frustrating start, BUT GOT IT DONE!!!! GO ‘STROS!!!!!

Crazy game, this was a great short version, we won, so proud of our Houston Astros... addicted to watching them. So proud. Houston Proud.

What a way to make sports center top play's

Way to get those bats going!!

Good job, guys. Keep the wins coming!

Why is Texas ATM with Mohd Ameen and Armann Bhati ? Who r they?

I hate that the weather Saturday is supposed to be so dreadful. Everyone stay safe.

Sure hope no trains decide to make an appearance.

Where did this map come from? Wm D Finch road is named Green Prairie Road on map....

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let the perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace.

Sincerest condolences & prayers for the Bush family & friends during this time. Thank you Mrs. Bush for always serving and representing this nation with class, grace & honor.

We were going to visit the library this weekend while we are in town for Muster but we will wait for another visit. We will definitely take the chance to watch her procession instead.

Is there a link for the ENTIRE motorcade route out of Houston?

Alexis Guillory! This will be an awesome motorcade, she is loved by so many Texans!❤️💙❤️

Peter carter

Does anyone know how this will affect southbound hwy 6? Not the service roads. Headed to a wedding in Hempstead and need to plan accordingly since this will be happening at the time we would be leaving.

Is there any information about media coverage of the visitation or the motorcade?

Brandon Warner.... wish I could join you this weekend!

Wendy Stout Bankston Paige Bartine, check out the map of motorcade. Try to see it Paige! Info on road closures too

Haley Miller- this would be memorable for K

Any sort of timeline?

Stacy Gingrich

May you Rest In Peace

Sarah Black tell your mom 😂

Ally Koger please try to go!!
