Baby Epbot 'Bot!

Jordan of jayMARIAH just posted this on the Epbot Facebook page, and AAAUUGHH GREAT GEEKY SQUEEEGASM!

Oh. My. Cute.

On the one hand, I am delighted beyond the capacity for rational thought.

On the other: HOW DARE SHE MAKE A BETTER 'BOT THAN ME?!

Ahem.

Ah, but it gets better. When I asked Jordan to scan the drawing in to send me a copy, she reported that she didn't have a scanner, so instead, how about this?

Orange balloon! Orange balloon! ORANGE BALLOON!!!

I love how Jordan instinctively knew the original 'bot was designed so his head could retract into his body, too. I like to think he really did start out as an egg, and then ate too many data chips as he got older. :D


Go show Jordan some love on her post, won't you? I'll just be here staring pie-eyed at the cuteness and cooing softly to myself. So, you know, don't mind me.

  2. Huh. I always assumed Epbot was a girl 'bot, since you're, you know, a girl. And Epbot is holding a flower and all.

  3. As a general rule, I don't like those "family" car decals... but when I saw this all I could think about was how much I want a little family of Epbots!

  4. @ anony - I kind of like that people see the 'bot either way. I've always thought of it as a boy, but it certainly doesn't bother me if readers prefer to think of it as a girl. Either way it's cute & geeky, and that's all that really matters!

  5. SO CUTE! I love how his antennae are big, like he's still growing into them. Maybe there's a way you can use the logo on posts about cute stuff like this, like baby Donald...?

  7. So cute. I love how the meter on his front is pointing to a lower, "younger" value.

  10. I love how his little meter is lower than big bot's meter. It's like it goes up as he gets older. :)
