Robot of the day: May 15

A tea time sketch. Initially the robots didn’t understand the tea time thing. I drew a parallel between my cuppa and their cable plugged into a USB port in the wall of the “cafe” and they understood quickly. We’ve had many unintentionally funny discussions about recharging practices. COPIC Wide markers are great for making quick sketches while I’m out and about among the robots.

The robots have always been fascinated by comic book superheroes, and Iron Man is a favorite. For obvious reasons, I suppose. A human that dons a robotic shell? Anyway, they do quite well at cosplay given access to a few cans of spray paint!
I tried to explain the concept of “costumes” to them but the robots weren’t having any of it. “Why would we not want this to be permanent? We are Iron Man. Technically we’re metal alloys and composites but we are still Iron Man.”

Robot of the Day: May 1

The late afternoon sun angled in through the window, lighting up the inside of the cafe with an intense glow. “May I draw you?” I asked the robot seated across the aisle from me. “You may,” it replied. After about 30 seconds it stood up and turned towards me. “Exit zero?” It then pivoted neatly and made its way to the door. I was able to quickly finish from memory. “Exit zero” I suppose.

Robot of the Day: April 24

It was not notable that this structure did not appear on any maps. While the maps on file were highly detailed and thoroughly annotated, there were large areas outside population centers that were completely unknown. This was one such area. What was notable was that this structure was apparently abandoned and showed signs consistent with a lengthy period of vacancy without any maintenance. That such a structure would go unused (and unmaintained!) for so long seemed irrational.
