Dirk ==> Go be room service.

You’ve never actually transportalized food before. Robot parts, sure. Stuffed animals, of course. Your own head once? Technically that was a sendificator but that’s a semi-minor detail. Point is, you have no idea how transportalizers effect taste and you’re really hoping it doesn’t effect it much. There’s not much you can do except cross your fingers, take your two mugs of coffee with you to the pad, enter Rose’s coordinates, and head on over.

Her apartment hasn’t much changed since you’ve last been there, though you realize you have a bit of a task ahead of you. She said she was in her bed but you have no idea where the bedroom is. You pick a random direction and start walking. “Madam, I have your coffee ready for you. Brought to you fresh all the way from the exotic land of Texas.” You listen for an answer.

Robot Food arrived at the peak of the global financial crisis. Five years later, we’re toasting success with our very own anniversary rum. To celebrate these five fantastic years, we’ve had special rum bottled, in a limited edition of fifty. It’s aged five years in oak barrels, with a label that speaks of ‘a depth and complexity far beyond its years’. Each bottle has been hand numbered and finished with a branded wax seal.”

Robot Food was started in a dining room in Harrogate, in January 2009, by Mike & Simon who met and became friends while studying art & design at college. We would love to say that we refined our model while learning from our employer, taking a wage – that we broke away, bringing clients with us on our journey, but we didn’t. We had a vision, developed creative concepts and PR’d them as if they were real, gaining exposure in major international design press. We then hit the phones and sent out branded promo. Many of our clients today became aware of us back then and have watched our growing determination for success.

Robots and Donuts

Eric Joyner has made a name for himself over the past few years with his signature Robot and Donuts series of paintings.

In his works, he depicts retro robots exploring and participating in a variety of activities… but somewhere in the painting donuts are incorporated. So, why Robots and Donuts? In his interview with Electix, Eric says:

“Upon deciding to become a gallery artist, I had to make some rules, or guidelines. They were as follows: 1 – I will only paint things I like, 2 – The subject(s) had to be something that I could paint for 30 years, and 3 – That people like it. Donuts & robots together make no sense. I find this interesting.”

Redditor downvotedagain shared this photo of an incredibly awesome Gingerbread Optimus Prime that was made by 3D and compositing artist Caroline Eriksson for a gingerbread contest put on by Melange, a Norwegian company which produces a margarine-based spread.

The contest winner will be awarded with a travel gift card worth about $6500. Good luck Caroline!

Robot Heart Recipes Test Kitchen: 9 Vegetarian Cuckoo for Quinoa Recipes

This is a collection I put together of Robot Heart Recipes Test Kitchen approved quinoa recipes. It really doesn’t get much better than quinoa in terms of a quick, easy, and versatile veg-friendly protein. Quinoa can be used in endless ways and can sneak its way into any meal. It’s great for making salads that can easily be transported for school or work lunches. If you’re just getting started with quinoa, try using it in place of rice in a dish you already enjoy. Do keep in mind that quinoa doesn’t offer much in the way of flavor on its own. I almost always swap out water for a flavorful medium like vegetable broth or juice when cooking quinoa. All of these recipes have earned the RHR Stamp o’ Approval. Some were even created by my own little brain. Enjoy!
