The Future in Machines

Funny how both RoboCop and The Terminator involve mechanical police officers, although one is a cyborg and the other is just pretending to be a cop (to murder a child, no less, in the second one).

Safe to say we’ve gotten plenty of those at this point, though. What’s a profession we don’t have much robot representation in media with?

Plumbers? A robot plumber is deathly afraid of water and uses Rube Goldberg-esque gizmos and gadgets to do its job a safe distance away from water sources. When catastrophe strikes and the robot’s the only one who can safely clear a blockage in the sewer, it has to face its fear head on! Despite saving the city, undoing the blockage causes the robot to be swept away in sewage out to the ocean in a beautiful sequence set to classical music.

Farmers? A family of robots run a nut farm. When the bank threatens to foreclose on their property due to missed payments, they are left with no choice but to enter the annual nut competition at the county fair. When the time comes to present their entry, we realize they weren’t farming tree nuts but the metal kind. The judges break their teeth, but the robots still win.

Taxi drivers? A robot taxi driver becomes the unwitting accomplice in a bank heist, facilitating their getaway. Shenanigans ensue as the robot becomes deeply embroiled in the robbers’ attempt to escape the city, battling with whether it can be considered culpable or not for its actions. By the end of the movie, the bond between the robbers and the robot is solidified, and the robot swears that if one of them goes down, they all go down together. Unfortunately, the climactic police chase where they’re finally cornered ends with the taxi bumping into a parked car, causing the robot to disengage a few nanoseconds before it hits. The company behind the robot and the robot itself are found not culpable for any of the events that have transpired.

Ready to get weird? We weren’t, which is why we chose these relatively tame designs rather than the proclaimed “freaky shit” by the man from the “sewers of Madrid” (his words, not mine) this time. But hey, there’s always next time. For now, you can check out all of getsousa’s other works on Insta and links from this handy link.
