    so weird bibi, i was just looking at this site this morning. am just about to post on robots myself i think…
    it ought to be noted that the boilerplate thing is not real. the site was evidently meant as a sort of proof of concept for a comic which people took seriously, so the creator, being an artist, took it as far as he could.
    still a great link, just thought i should mention it.

    Yep, it’s a nice link, but I’m not so sure if they were really real. But I liked the ideas and images.
