GloBot

Not a soccer ball!

0 · 167 views · located in Kikun Metropolis Electronic Scrapyard

a character in “Robot Scrapyard Remake”, as played by Lloyd999

Description

Name: GloBot Image
Age: About four years.
Gender: Male programming
Type: Robot
Appearance: Globot consists of two parts, a basic Stage 2 Personality Core (outdated) and a movement apparatus. The core is a sphere, about the size of a basketball, in the center that can spin freely and has a blue 'eye' hooked up with various cameras and various AI processors. His movement apparatus is a rather delicate and lanky one, but for a rather immobile PC, it's a huge plus. Although, it does make him about 3 feet tall.

Likes: Attention
Dislikes: Sports involving abuse of a 'ball'.

Purpose: Assistance in corporate businesses and public education.
Equipment: He's basically a mobile computer with intelligence, but without internet. His internal functions work as well as any computer, but can also be an able assistance. He can also upload and download data from a variety of conventional hardware and software, and can even read coded or broken data, not to mention he's a good translator. It's unfortunate that his vocal processor was damaged.

While he is a simple PC, he has a useful accessory that let's him move and perform tasks without assistance, having arms ad legs. They don't have any special features, but many office accessories can be installed onto it. He operates it's wirelessly, so even if the PC itself rolls out, which it does often due to a broken latch, the body can still be controlled.

Personality: As a V2 PC, it has a very simple view of goals, and is a very loyal and hardworking individual, although he always feels inferior to others, as he feels other machines can preform better than him. He thinks it's the reason he got thrown away, and therefore is working hard to make sure he doesn't get turned into steel wool. Although, he's not the bravest of them all, he's got good memory.

Background: Globot used to work in a hotel. He worked various jobs there, which he excelled at. At first, he was a secretary of sorts, but once a newer AI had replaced him, he became in charge of customer service, until his vocal processor gave away. Then he was a janitorial manager, but the latch that kept his head screwed on had broken, and one time, his PC ended up in scrap by accident. His body chased it all the way to the scrapyard, and since then, nobody's come look for him, so he is of the belief he got thrown away and is working hard to redeem himself.

So begins...

GloBot's Story

EMERA always woke up an hour before schedule at this time of year, as his internal clock battery was long since dry, so while his CPU can calculate time, it couldn't react to daylight savings changes, and schedule based events had to be manually programmed, and he wasn't programmed for date-based events either. Therefore, even before all the equipment was operational, EMERA was hard at work, digging through piles of metal, cables, hardware scrap and robot guts and was sorting them into various piles to be picked up by other machines to be taken to their respective places all around the scrapyard. Working ahead of schedule gave them lots of work to do.

However, about an hour later, activating on the dot, was the ever so diligent GloBOT. However, despite having a fully functional set of limbs and appendages, his delicate frame was never meant for the movement and transport of scrap materials. But where he lacked in functionality, he made up for in computing power. While there were so many things that were thrown away, they all went to seperate places. Motherboards had to be taken to disassemblers for extracting their gold content, while computers had their own disassemblers to seperate plastic, glass, silver, gold and. A robot's shell usually is made fully of plastic or various metals, while androids may have chemicals used for synthetic skin, and broken parts always had to be sorted by fixed ones. There was no way a robot like EMERA, built for strength, had any room for computers that could examine all the various properties of the junk it found and sort them into hundreds of different piles. However, GloBot, programmed with the ability to identify and sort all kinds of office papers and identify and terminate junk male found this sort of work rather simple.

Thus began their teamwork. One moves stuff while the other identifies it. While GloBot doesn't appreciate EMERA's clumsiness and EMERA finds GloBot annoying, they have made a sort of worker's bond, even though GloBot knew very well it broke the law about being friends with your coworkers, as opposed to being friendly, but neither have really observed it.

Although, something happened that day. As EMERA pulled a hunk of trash out of the mounds of scrap, something unusual among it stuck out. A steel cube, about the size of a rubic's cube. GloBot picked it up to examine it with his visual scanners, identifying it as hallow, but without any other information. GloBot warbled something unintelligible to EMERA, who responded with a moan, not so different from a whale's call. GloBot answered, placing a fist in his hand and narrowing his mechanical eyelid. EMERA responded with a whoop, positioning himself in an attack pose over the cube, while GloBot seemed to have an evil chuckle. Fists together, the hulking machine pounded on the cube, but it deflected his fists. GloBot did a distorted 'Huh?' as the stronger robot continued pounding, until the cube disintegrated into a black dust. The two robots celebrated, feeling rather accolished about the feat of strength obliterating the object, before turning back to work.

However, the dust sat there, but it seemed to move, like a bunch of microscopic ants, as it grew slowly. It was unnoticeable at first, until GloBot stepped in it, the pile, or rather, puddle, being four times it's original size. It clung to GloBot's foot, causing GloBot to start trying to scrape the black goop off with his hand. It struck to his hand, but it didn't come off. EMERA noticed his trouble and attempted to pull the goop off with his magnet, but instead, GloBot stuck to it. It warm led something angerly as EMERA let him off, and instead curiously grabbed the goop with his magnet it being pulled easily.

But then GloBot noticed something; the goop was eating away at his hand and foot. Panicked, the two robots started trying all they could to get it off. EMERA smacked his hand against the ground while GloBot ran around, looking for something to scape the stuff off, wanting to protect his frame. EMERA, panicked, ran into a pile of scrap and started pounding at it, making noise like a robotic Japanese drummer, while GloBot's core loved out from it's frame ad started rolling off, his body blindly trying to chase it. The two robots wreaked havoc as they tried to preserve their parts from the black dust-goop eating away at their material.

GloBot, getting a sense of his bearings, guided his body to the human (as far as he was concerned), but his walking was a little unsteady, as his head wasn't connected and his foot was shortened slightly, making him like a wobbily chair. EMERA jogged his way over more quickly and obediently, picking up both pieces of GloBot on the way, with the magnet that wasn't being transformed on the molecular level into more molecular construction nanobots.

After EMERA dropped the GloBot in front of the human mechanic, the two readily waited to be treated, hovering like two children waiting to be treated for bee stings. With immediate treatment, EMERA would be fine, with only a slightly warped hand, but GloBot would end up with a limp and barley even a finger. Though, fortunately, his core was safe.

There are very very many parts you have to have to make a robot. Kind of like humans., except, a lot more complicated.. Isabella jotted down onto her journal, holding a burnt out piece of CPU between her legs. But the the most important parts are the ones that help computers think, like the CPUs. CPU's are like the Left side of a brain, and help computers with language and knowledge. Today, I'm going to try and find a left side of a computer's brain, that controls it's emotions and personality! Wish me luck~ Isabella placed her pen in between the pages and closed her journal. She placed it and the CPU board in a slot in her backpack, zipped it up and got ready to do just as she wrote.

Isabella wasn't afraid to get her hands a little dirty while trying to find unused computer chips. Though, she was afraid to meet an actually alive one. She had heard so many rumors about the robots at junk yard, how they might start a rebellion and take over the world. Of course, even to her, this didn't sound very realistic because it would go against one of the Robot laws. Though, Isabella just wants to make sure, just so, you know, she can hide in her basement before it all begins.

Isabella had just found a curious little packet of computer chips, hardly even opened. She couldn't read what it said, but she was sure she could figure it out at home. Just as she was putting it away, she began to hear... mumbling? Oh no, that wasn't it. A giant machine came jogging by before you could say "Hide!" Isabella crouched down quickly behind a pile of organized scraps, and was just barely small enough to be concealed. Her heart raced at the thought of being smashed in an instant, but, it seemed as if she wasn't noticed. She couldn't see very well, but it sounded like it was far off now. She came out of concealment a little and saw it joining up with another and two... Humans? Isabella tilted her head a little, curious of this. What were they all doing? It looked like one was treating the two robots. Isabella placed her hand on the scrap pile to give her some support, but it was unbalanced and a few sheets fell off and clanged into another. Isabella gasped and was up and out of there in a second, thinking it might be better to just go home early today.

Sarah

Sarah watched, in her usual emotionless state, the robot known as EMERA run up, carrying the one known as GloBot. These were probably her more favorite robots, although. As EMERA approached, however, Sarah caught a slight bit of movement... She switched to x-ray, her eyes changing to a pure grey, spotting the small human crouching, glancing at them. She waited until she looked away before silently rolling away, careful not to alert her companions that she was gone, and lightly ran across the junk, making close to no noise as she jumped the pile the human was hiding behind just as she started leaving.

Sarah landed a few feet behind her, pulling out her katana and pointing it at the girl. "What is your reason for your presence in this area?" Sarah said, the blade inches from her face. "I have no wish to harm you."

Sarah
Sarah watched the girl fall, moving the blade with her until five seconds after she fell before frowning. She put the sword away, staring at the girl, then crouching in front of her face. This has never happened before, she was expecting some form of resistance, not instant fainting. She poked her in the face a few times to no effect, then picked her up before looking around, confused as what to do exactly, before deciding that Nea would know what to do. Or at least, she'd better know what to do...
Sarah took off, climbing a large pile of rubble with no problem and spotting where Nea was, quickly sprinting up to her. "Nea." Sarah said. Her voice, rarely used anyway, had a small sense of urgency.

".....unless you spot them carrying a weapon themselves. Okay?"
Isabella came to consciousness to the sound of those words. Her eyes flickered around for a moment, observing and attempting to remember. Her eyes fell onto the woman with the sword and her panicking immediately resumed.

"N-no, wait! Y-you can't kill me yet!" Isabella pleaded. "I didn't do anything..! I.. I... I have to go home.." Isabella was near passing out again, but with the thought that Androids were going to eat out her brains if she didn't stay awake, she stayed conscious. Izzy placed the palm of her hand on her forehead and tried not to convince herself she was still knocked out or something, anything to keep from loosing what was left of her cool. "I-I didn't.. I didn't know.." She took one last look around at the robots before decided to keep quiet.

EMERA, after getting laser-washed of the tiny monstrosities watched curiously and intentively as Nea made the repairs on GloBot, barely understanding how it even worked. Once GloBot got the new leg installed onto his frame, he placed his core back in it and started testing it. It worked about as well, possibly even better than his last leg. It was a bit denser and could have used oiling, but it was more durable than his original, something he would need in the scrapyard.

The two were about to start celebrating and head back to work, when they saw the guard android bring a human over. EMERA brought his face close to it's feet, perhaps a little too close, narrowing in on it like a banana peel in a pile of scrap metal. GloBot stood next to it's head, trying to stand on his toes, unable to gain a good visual point due to his small stature. GloBot used to encounter many humans all the time until his new employment, but EMERA rarely came in contact besides coworkers that may or may not have had augmentations on them. Both of them spoke in their own indistinguishable ways, with a clear confused tone.

Sarah

Sarah frowned. a rare show of emotion, and set the girl down before taking a step back, hands behind her back. She was never told what the standard procedure was, just to keep order. She couldn't look at Nea. After all, one of the few friends she had in the world just rebuked her. No one else knows this, but that was the first time she's ever been rebuked for her actions. She's always been perfect, never making mistakes. She was designed to not do that sort of thing, and she just made one. She looked at the girl she just set on the ground and bowed, showing her apologizes. "I should not have threatened with lethal force." She said, returning to her emotionless state.

Isabella took a few seconds listening and watching the other two robots observe her. One was the one she saw from earlier, giant and frightening. It came a little too close to her feet and she flinched away, almost glaring at it. That at the least got her attention off of the situation, for a moment.

Nea brought the awareness back again. "My name? It's... I-Isabella. My.." Isabella hesitated for a moment, but when on ahead. "My dad works here. I was just.. just.. exploring." she responded, sniffles interrupting her explanation. "I-I didn't mean to. Please don't tell him.." Isabella was getting a bit curious if weather or not these two were human. She knew for fact that the other two in the back weren't, but... At this point, she'd rather be caught by something that couldn't expose where she went off to rather than something that could. If these women wouldn't kill her, her father might.

Sarah nodded and bowed. "I apologize for not doing a good enough job, sir." That was pretty normal, she was used to being the subordinate. "I shall modify my schedule to allow more patrol time. What is the protocol should one of us encounter a suspect, sir?" Formal as always when in the presence of the owner. Sarah constantly asks herself why she doesn't just go rouge herself, but she has goals, simple, abstract goals that she herself doesn't fully understand, but goals nonetheless, and none of them include her killing random civilians, as far as she could figure out.

Sarah watched GloBot and EMERA's attempt to be more helpful with a look of amusement, then giggled. "I don't think they understand you, GloBot." She said her body relaxing. "But If you spoke in Morse code, I could interpret for you." She changed back to normal vision, having no need to see in the form of heat any more. Her emotions came for only a few seconds, as she spoke the second sentence, her stance and voice returned to her normal, emotionless self.
