Watch How A Robot DJ Takes Over The Stage At A Nightclub In Prague

Last month, a robotic DJ arm set the dance-floor of a popular nightspot in Czech Republic on fire.

Karlovy Lazne, a nightclub in Prague, Czech Republic, has introduced a new special DJ to spice up its line-up.

Shaped like a giant arm capped with a pincer,” and “equipped with special software” that helps choose songs, the robot alternated every hour with a human fellow last month. Placed on a stage above the dance-floor, the bionic disc jokey can also scratch records as well as dance.

The club’s manager Adam Lipsansky seemed very pleased with the novelty: “People are excited (about the robot), because they haven’t seen anything like this around Europe, and I am not sure if there is something similar in the world,” he told Reuters.

While some clubbers really enjoyed the artificial intelligence, others, however, remained unconvinced.

I don’t like the robot,” said Marcia Lopes, a tourist from Mexico. “It can’t feel what the people want to dance to. There is no emotion behind the music. When there is a real person, they know, what fun is like.

The robotic arm was manufactured by KUKA Robotics, member of the KUKA Aktiengesellschaf, a Chinese-owned German company of industrial robots and solutions for factory automation.
