Robot of the Day: Inktober #20

The robot took a moment to appreciate this: a packet of data rendered in atoms instead of bits.

The night-time trek through the forest was a battery-draining affair; servos and gyros worked overtime to negotiate the rooty and rocky trails. As the weak light of the sunrise began to filter through the trees, the robot anticipated being able to deploy photovoltaic panels to recharge before the next leg of its journey.

CRONan spent many hours finding, fixing, maintaining and adjusting the collection of clocks.
