Where Could Friday's Strip Take Us?

A panicking Faye quizzes Bubbles about the 'Robot Hegemony' thing
Bubbles: "Actually, Faye, They promised you to me as a pet! That is a joke."
Claire: "Marten! I've found a new true calling in my life! I want to be a materials engineer!"
Dora and Tai exploring when Dora became the Den Mother to the main cast
Hannelore goes to visit Spookybot to discuss the Hegemony in a way that suggests it is a huge practical joke on intelligent life
Bubbles and Hanners silence Dora...by shushing her every minute for no obvious reason

WCDT Strips 3486 to 3490 (22 to 26 May 2017)
« on: 21 May 2017, 14:00 »

I just thought that this would be a fun little discussion.

I, personally, can see Bubbles trying to get as much mileage out of this just because she enjoys watching Faye freak out. Then she'll see how genuinely scared Faye is and apologise in a really heartwarming way.

Either that, or Spookybot talking to Hanners. They agree, regretfully, that Pintsize is far to focussed on mass mayhem and slaughter. The time had come to end that threat to their plans once and for all! The time had come to use their ultimate weapon...! Emily's Funny Cat GIF Quantum Thumb Drive! (10 Peytabytes full of cute kitties with captions, some of which may be from adjacent quantum universes)! Next strip, Marten wonders why all Pintsize does is sit, staring vacantly at a wall and muttering "I can has cheezburger?" to himself over and over.

No, I'm not sure where that came from either.

Well, Faye, welcome to your reality where, if someone's butt falls off, you're the go-to girl. Panel 4, with Faye's astonished reaction to the fact that Panicbot came to the right place really is an astonishingly subtle comedic moment. As is contemplating what previous places he burst into. My suggestions include a florist, a vaping shop and a bordello.

Meanwhile, Hannelore continues to offer subtle supports for my theory that she's at least part-synthetic herself.

There are probably upper limits to the level of augmentation possible for humans. 'Six Million Dollar Man' (sensory or  limb replacement therapy) is certainly going to be possible. However 'Ghost i the Shell' (a brain as the CPU of a humanoid chassis) probably is not if only due to the problems of nutrient provision for the brain-in-a-jar. From what Pintsize said to Claire about humans 'body-swapping' one day, I suspect that someone is working on that technology but I think that it would take a very special personality to take that up

FWIW, my theory is that Hannelore is a lot like the BSG2003 humanform Cylons. She's biological but has a computer-augmented brain and possibly electro-mechanically-augmented limbs. She may have been 'grown' in vitro too, purely because I can't see Beatrice being willing to go through a pregnancy or trusting anyone else with it.

I imagine a generic/universal style chassis could change out butts and chest sections for body customization along with shorter or longer arms and legs and perhaps a adjustable spine for lengthening the torso could be quite plausible.

It would probably have a better performance than a basic unit like May's (think of used clunker you got on Craigs list) and maybe classified as a Stage II body(for example mom's minivan or a suv). From there you move up to a even better Stage III body that's build to your preferences( think luxury sedan). Then you could move on to the Stage IV's that are high performance (sports car) and the Stage V's like Bubble's combat chassis.(Milspec armored vechile of your choice)

Everyone has a detachable butt. It's just a question of how much mess you are willing to make...

I imagine a generic/universal style chassis could change out butts and chest sections for body customization along with shorter or longer arms and legs and perhaps a adjustable spine for lengthening the torso could be quite plausible.
But this seems more sensible. Robot bodies are presumably manufactured in discrete modules much as cars are, and components might fall off through wear and tear. We know that May's arm fell off, because her body is so clapped out.

I imagine a generic/universal style chassis could change out butts and chest sections for body customization along with shorter or longer arms and legs and perhaps a adjustable spine for lengthening the torso could be quite plausible.

I think that there are two distinct forms of chassis: Modular ones like those used by May and Jeremy and integrated ones like Bubbles and Momo, otherwise known as 'the expensive ones'. You can't just swap out parts of integrated units (because they use pseudo-myomers as significant part of their actuation and, if you look at pictures of the human musculature, you'll notice that myomer layers don't come in easily separable sections).

In fact, I wonder if you could consider 'expensive' chassis types like Momo and Bubbles as being pseudo-organic with the number of bio-mimetic technologies in use. It wouldn't surprise me if they could eat to source chemicals to carry out low-level self-repair (self healing derma, for example).

You know, it's interesting that even with the very plain, practical, "yes-I-am-a-robot" chassis types (such as those of Pintsize or our dramatic orange client who I am assuming is called Satsuma), the ability to convey basic emotion through facial expression is still considered very important. Whatever their heads are made of it must be something much more complex than the metal box it purports to be.

Q: If Melon's butt fell off, why can't she move herself? I'd think that even without a butt she'd be able to walk around anyway. Though looking a bit silly without a butt, but anyway. Or is her friend just overly fond of dramatic entrances?

Well, I hope the character Nick Zerhacker from 'Skin-Horse' doesn't count towards that. He literally does identify as a helicopter, and his brain is installed in a modified V-22 Osprey(source 1) (source 2).

Incidentally, his name is a bilingual bonus AND a reference to the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz.

Something something sex robots.

(Incidentally, I would imagine there are AIs who provide sexual and emotional intimacy for humans. I'm thinking along the lines of Companions from Firefly.)
In 3301-3305 May and Momo discuss Human/AI intimate relations. It was also touched upon earlier when they ran into Sven and May in her typical style enquired whether Momo had any specific options for this installed. On the other hand, Pintsize laments in 3265 that he can't find a human to shove things into, whereupon May notes that there isn't an AI-fetish club nearby.

And have any humans actually been uploaded to android/robot bodies?
They showed that in the Channel 4/AMC series "Humans". A teenage girl named Renie was acting like a "synth", and the main cast's youngest daughter Sophie began doing likewise.
We haven't seen anything like "Ghost in the Shell"'s ability to take a human brain, encapsulate it in a "cyberbrain" and install it into an android chassis in the QC-verse. I doubt that is where Jeph would try to take it, but we have seen low-level cyborgs a la Clinton.

Yeah, somehow I don't buy that turning over control to AI would be such a great idea for humanity.

Exhibit A: Pintsize
Exhibit B: May
Exhibit C: The company that paired Pintsize with Martin
Exhibit D: Station and Spaceship (not that they're bad, but they clearly make bad decisions sometimes)
Exhibit E: Spookybot

Frankly, the AIs we've met haven't shown any more wisdom, compassion, or morality than the humans. Which is fine, but it makes it a bit arrogant for an AI to talk about taking over for the "good" of humanity.

What are we doing to do with all these blue index cards lying on the sidewalk outside the window that's pretending to be broken?

What I want to know is what idiot designed her chassis to have a detachable butt in the first place! What purpose could that possibly serve?

Maybe it's a service access point.
