My Robots (Somebody's Got to Do it Themed)

Post by munsi » Sun Sep 22, 2013 8:43 pm

I’ve built a robot, with a smaller robot inside.

And a smaller robot in there.

And another in there.

It’s smaller robots all the way down, basically. Like Russian nesting dolls. It took a lot of design work, but I think it was worthwhile.

Take them apart if you’d like, somebody eventually will, the temptation to see how far down they go is just too great!

And, when the last robot’s opened, nanobots will swarm forth, eradicating all biological life from this world, grey-goo style.

Wait, what? What do you mean, why?

Some things you do just because you can…

So when the nanobots all leave, we have empty nesting drone.

Ah robots and mad scientists, always a funny combination. It actually has an almost lovecraftian vibe as in the curious nature of humans will ultimately lead to their demise. You don't want to know what is inside. In the pursuit of knowledge you unleash your own doom.
