they, robots


like jurassic park led to a flood of plastic dinosaurs, the movie adaptation of asimov’s i, robot fueled a new craze about our mechanical friends. well, not really an adaptation, more like the worst thing that could have happened to the book. why is it so damn hard to make a good scifi movie from a book? i mean, i still have nightmares about johnny mnemonic. eh, nevermind.
tomorrow, the exhibition “The Robots” will open for 4 days at viennas’ gasometer, featuring faustian bots, steel butlers, a build-your-own-robo-workshop, and all those annoying tincans you’ve seen at the movies. the show is open 09:00-18:00, entry costs 12€ for adults and 7€ for kids. while it might not be as relaxed as other robot shows, it’ll definitely be interesting. and who knows, maybe austria’s robo football team (which is the european champion currently!) will find some new talent there.
i just hope that they have some glorious femme bots with a penchant for evil.
