Robot of the Day: Oct 07, 2021

A continuation of the story from the last post. It is currently unfinished but we plan to return to it in the coming months.

Was my unease mirrored in my companions’ uncertain movements? One turned to me, “Be at ease. There are no ‘spectral entities’ here— it is just a rodent underfoot.” I glanced down to see the robot shuffle their feet around a scurrying rat as it disappeared into a crack. The other robot had fixed their attention down the dark corridor: “I am unable to explain the appearance of those lights in the distance,” as they gestured at clustered pinpoints of light that appeared to float in the darkness.

Robot of the Day: April 14

With the sighting of the giant now moved to storage, the robots set up their thermoelectric generator and discussed their plan for the next day. Through their sighting of the giant they had established the plausibility of some of the stories that had been shared with them during their travels. Their course of action was plain: they would seek evidence to confirm (or debunk) other stories of anomalous events and circumstance.

Robot of the Day: April 2

The other day I was sitting with a group of robots when one of them told me a story: while exploring/mapping a remote location the robot encountered a passageway to a subterranean space. The robot related that the space was difficult to measure as IR provided no useful information and there was a high level of EMF noise. So noisy, in fact that the robot was forced to leave as the RF interference was affecting its own CPU. But it did detect something deep within emanating from the shorter wavelengths of the visible spectrum…

Robot of the Day: March 5

I’d come to the realization that I’d left large portions of the city unexplored and thus set off deeper into the heart of the urban environment. Some hours later I emerged from a dark alley into an obviously “1.5” version of the city; older and more worn but no less vibrant and active. Upon catching sight of me, the resident robots paused in their activities and—stared—at me. I got the feeling that perhaps I was the first human they had seen in a long while?
