I went to "GLORY HOLE - Robotic SEX and ART demo" at Omnicircus Saturday night. It was a rather strange show, as the event description linked above aptly illustrates.

Actual human/machine copulation did not materalize however, and I was a bit disappointed in that of course :)

It was quite a multimedia event. Robots, dancers, actors, computer animation projections, live music ...all surrounded by (or implemented by) some amazing post apocalyptic carnival artwork. And the venue itself was a star of the show. You can do a Quicktime VR Tour with the image below (use mouse to move, ctrl/shift zooms):
