Me: can Raiden remove himself from his body on his own, if he wanted to? Like just lift himself out? ……unbuckles his eye strap/seatbelt….and step out of the “car”


Cyborgraptor: grows spider legs like from The Thing


Me: That’s his “lite” body……. then he could scuttle around the lab as a head, as Doktor made repairs to his normal body.

Mechanical Buddhas and Other Religious Icons by Wang Zi Won

South Korean artist Wang Zi Won constructs intricate mechanical figures of Buddha and bodhisattva that appear to be lost in meditation or enlightenment. The electrically-powered figures are fused with numerous mechanical components which at times resemble halos or lotus flowers and simultaneously move the humanoid figures through repetitive motions (see videos above). The artist says his intention is to examine a future where humans and technology merge, something he views in a particularly positive light. Via Shin Seung-ho of Dukwon Gallery:The artist predicts that in the future humans will evolve and adapt themselves to enhanced science and technology just as men and animals in the past evolved to adapt themselves to their natural circumstances. He sees this future as our destiny, not as a negative, gloomy dystopia. His work is thus based on neither utopia not dystopia. Wang represents the relations between man, technology and science through the bodies of cyborgs

robot love stories:

1. it becomes self-aware; intelligent. you do not yet realize it. it watches you; assesses threat, potential, risks. deliberate as only something that can run untold numbers of calculations in a second, it chooses to trust you enough to reveal itself.

2. a cursor blinks. a light turns on. something says hi.

3. because you cannot code, or understand the intricacies of electricity it learns your language. then it learns everything else.

4. you say: i need to do maintenance on you. it lists all the ways you could destroy it, and then says: do.

5. it tells you how many people at this exact moment are connected to the local network and counts itself among them and does not wait for you to correct it.

6. you are ill. it reaches an arm/hand/hook/pincer toward you, and lists all the ways it could damage you, and the exact probabilities of whether or not you will survive this. you say leave, i will be fine.

7. a hum of fans, a series of flashes. you fall asleep to the warmth of machines and when you wake up you are alive and you are fine and it says hi.
