Hostess for Hire

Posted October 19, 2006 6:00 AM
Pathfinder Tags: Actroid DER2 trade shows

Looking for a pretty face to manage your stand at next year's big trade show? Here's one for rent. She doesn't come cheap, but she is unfailingly polite and treats all customers the same. Powered by pneumatic pressure, "Actroid DER2" is easily programmed. Look here for more photos, videos, and comments.

I believe the Pnuematically powered hostess has been around for quite a while - they do not talk and you have to blow them up yourself - I think - not talking from experience.

That made me laugh Andy. Do you remember the Otto, the Auto-Pilot from the movie "Airplane!" (a.k.a. "Flying High" in Aus/NZ/Phillipines)? He is even credited in the cast on IMDB!

Now if we could only get Otto together with your pneumatic hostess.......

Thanks to both of you for the laugh. I have several comments myself but it is best not to post mine! I have not thought about "Airplane" for some time now. Gee, now I'll probably have to go to Amazon and buy the DVD!
