Robot of the Day: April 20

Their journey took the robots through ever stranger landscapes. One evening, at sunset, the sky appeared to be consumed in a silent explosion. They were momentarily alarmed, however neither of them detected any rapid changes in local atmospheric conditions or an increase in EMF. Even so, there was a low-level background noise that defied analysis…

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.

After the giant had vanished into the mists, the pair of explorers continued on their way along the ridge. While they saw no more of the colossus for the remainder of their traverse, their CPUs hummed with visual data (IR, visual spectrum, and UV) collected during the encounter. Prior to embarking on their journey many stories had been shared with them regarding anomalous phenomena in the vast unmapped areas. They wondered what else might be true?

The robots were preparing to resume their journey, one waiting on the other to complete its rearrangement of its pack contents when they simultaneously spotted the giant looming over the far hilltop. A system test confirmed that this was legitimate input— not the result of noise, corrupt data, voltage irregularity, or similar malfunction.

Robot of the Day: Inktober #20

After a moment of consideration and a calculation of the force required, the robot brought the bottle down sharply onto its knee— the bottom half of the vessel shattered, releasing the two data cards within. The robot took a moment to appreciate this: a packet of data rendered in atoms instead of bits.

Robot of the day: Inktober #19

The bottle contained what appeared to be ancient punch cards. If the bottle was an anomaly in this environment the punchcards were doubly so. A scan of the scorched and desiccated landscape yielded no other feature, artificial or natural. The robot turned its attention back to the bottle and its mysterious contents…
