The RoboDog with WindowPane Eyes
“Come see the world through my WindowPane eyes!” says Sparky the RoboDog.
“Floors of conductive copper tile the house, allowing me to continually draw restorative power as a trundle round about. My master’s commands reach me via my cute coiled spring antenna of a tail (which tingles!). This glistening pill-shaped nose you see is coated with receptor gel that attracts and traps individual scent molecules for analysis and identification; it’s capable of discerning 21,750 different scents!”
“I never need to eat, but my slotted mouth allows for the occasional canine upgrade through insertion of a next-generation motherboard. My draped-dot hide pattern has been carefully calibrated to embody a maximum cuteness factor — and thereby significant owner endearment and gushy affection.”
“But the eyes have it! Through these windowpane lattices I perpetually see and observe and scrutinize and psychoanalyze you, and am thus always optimally prepared to draw you inexorably into an ineffable petly bond! Come closer, human!”
