ABOUT THIS PROJECT


Tell us briefly about your project. Is it a work of art or does it serve another function?

Before you sits a robot made of mere cardboard and tape. Is it art or does it serve a purpose? Form or function is the question. It cannot be anything but both. For what form of art does not function to stimulate the mind, to create a fantasy of action and justice? Art that does not, is not. So I ask you, what do you see? Mere cardboard and tape? Or a new world, eager to be explored?

When did you start working on this project and how long did it take you to complete?

No one knows exactly where this seemingly sentient collection of debris and semiconductors came from. My only real theory is that it was created when lightning excited a semi-stable layer of octetstrings in my lab.

What was your goal in building this project?

More importantly is IT'S goal. I've observed it behaving strangely lately. It has been becoming increasingly aware of my presence. I think it was watching me sleep last night...

Does your project help to solve a problem? If so what problem?

If the human populous on the earth is a problem, then it may be looking to 'solve' that problem. It's objectives are shrouded in mystery, but I fear the worst.

What makes your idea unique?

What makes this robot unique? The fact that there is only one of them.* *So far. The autonomous reproduction of this machine is undocumented, I'll be careful.

In what capacity are you using bearings and what type of bearings?

The bot seems to use ball-bearing servos for their added durability and torque capacity. I also believe that it uses a catalytic effect from ingesting zinc-coated bearings as a fuel source.

What is the most important thing you want people to know about your project?

That it cannot be stopped.

How will you use the $5,000 prize?

Please help me win the prize so that I can purchase equipment to destroy it once and for all. Your vote may be the only way to prevent life as we know it from ending. Vote carefully!
