A popular Czech nightclub has employed a new robotic DJ to spice up the routine and attract customers with a craving for the exotic. informs that the Karlovy Lazne Music Club in Prague now has got itself an industrial-grade DJ – a repurposed robot that was originally used at a vehicle assembly plant.

"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," club manager Adam Lipsansky said.

The mechanical DJ, shaped like a giant arm with a pincer attached, is mounted on a platform above the dance floor. Thanks to a special suit of software, the robot can choose which songs to play and, apparently, even dance.
Some customers however took a dim view of the club’s new addition.

"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," a Mexican tourist named Marcia Lopes remarked.
