Things have been pretty quiet around here lately. I’ve been stuck in a pretty bad art rut lately, specifically a drawing line art with actual real pens and stuff rut. To try and break out of it, I’m going to be doing random doodly scribbly things to amuse myself/get back in the habit of arting/regain skills lost due to slacking/stretch brain muscles/etc and so on.

Here’s a girl and her awkwardly disinterested robot boyfriend, inspired by Royksopp and Robyn’s “Girl and the Robot”.

I am not a robot of the society

When you walk through your city what do you see? I will tell you what I see. people walking in the same way. They all look like each other. I see people pretending. Faking. I was one of that persons. A person who fake and pretend to be like the others. I am not a f*cking robot. So here I am. Being myself. For example I love grunge. I love the clothes and when I look around I see no one wear clothes like that. I always felt like is that normal? I never wear it because I was afraid. I was done with it. I want to be who I want to be. 

Society teach us who they want us to be. They tell us how normal people should look like. Normal teenagers don’t dye there hair if you do it people are looking at you. When you walk in skirts in school it is like why the hell are you wearing a skirt? (I live in Holland, so we don’t have school uniforms so here it is rare). We aren’t a robot. Society creates people and try to creaty people who they need. Don’t let them. BE YOU. You are good enough. You are who you want to be. It is good enough for me. Don’t be afraid of what other people will say of it. You are an unique person and when they judge you it means that you are better than them. I will tell you it feels good to be a person that people look at. To wear something different. We aren’t robot. We are we and that is enough.

Diego San

This android infant was born to the University of California San Diego’s Machine Perception Lab. Diego is about 4’3 (130cm), much larger than the average one year old child and weighs roughly 65 pounds (30kg).

The lab received funding from the National Science Foundation to contract Kokoro Co. Ltd. and Hanson Robotics, two companies that specialize in building lifelike animatronics and androids, to build a replicant based on a one year old baby.

It gives life-like facial expressions and was developed to approximate the complexity of a human body. It’s the first of its kind, but wont be for very long. Other robot infants are in development along with Roboy, a robot boy that promises to go beyond this.
