Robots and artificial intelligence have long been considered a substitute for humans, carrying out various activities around the world.

Two high-heeled dancer robots, equipped with a CCTV camera on their heads, make their debut at the SC-Club in the French city of Nantes to mark its fifth anniversary next week.

They were invented by Briton Giles Walker, who covered their metal bodies with plastic mannequins depicting women's breasts.
