I see a chain of these guys, using June The Second's chain technique, marching along a "random path", using an adaptation of an old Vojo post, with each minion having unique eye rotations, adapting June's gear development!  What fun that would be!!!  Maybe even animate little arms!?!  A travelling band of minion robots!!!

Hmmmm.  Perhaps I've had too much coffee this morning.

Well acquainted with Mr Asimov.

Perhaps Yacine,or someone could add a storyline to our wandering band of minion robots.

Paul, you have to disable your NSA Blocker.

It's probably a flash player. I have three browsers on my machine and they all show the video. Is there a way to embed YouTube videos without flash these days? If so, I should probably update the blog template. But that would require T I M E.

Here's the video link, btw: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJbm0gNDuGs.

My idea was to have various states of blinking, four or five mouth states, one eye or two eyes, and a few other options. Combined with the Word Balloon shape, one could spice up annotations, presentations, etc. Not really very useful, but VERY useful if you're looking at it from a non-Vulcan perspective.

Would my old cartoon characters help?
