At the N900 Push event in London in February 2010, Nokia promoted its N900 mobile computer by displaying dancing robots. These humanoid robots had molded breasts and danced near stationary poles, and made especially sexualised moves when participants sent specified SMSes.

This incident is an example of a sexualized environment, which can contribute to a hostile and unwelcoming environment for women at corporate and technical events.
