Well I keep a daily eye on it. In addition to me you will see 2 names here pretty much every day. Goldeneye and Robert The Robot. Now Goldeneye is a friend from The Earth Agents LA group with mad computer skills who helps out and Robert The Robot is the shared identity of the "Uncles" who control him as a part of the Sentinels team that I head up.
I may as well drift off topic a bit to explain. There are a good many folks who for various reasons donít or canít strike out on their own as RLSH types. But they still want to help when and where they can. So when I was forming the Sentinels team I took this into account. I wanted to utilize this untapped resource.
Ever since I was a rug rat 1 of my major interests has been robotics. I had always wanted a Robot as big as I was. So when I finally had sufficient skills I started making one. At 1st it was little more than an animated display figure that talked. Since then I have tried to make subsequent rebuilds resemble the original one outwardly.
I used it that 1st year to pass out Halloween candy to little kids that came by the house. To show you how long it has been in development I made the 1st build when the original Star Wars film had just come out on Betamax. Needless to say it was a humongous hit with the kids.
That started me on the path to see just how much I could end up having it do. Turns out that was quite a bit as I was only limited by what materials I could afford to buy, my knowledge of robotics and a place to build and rebuild it again and again.
Not being a complete dummy I researched every source I could get my hands on asking for help from anyone I encountered who had robotic or computer knowledge. Those who helped out to any extent became Robertís Uncles. Not to be sexist as I will be happy to add in any Aunts if and when I encounter some.
At first Robert was kind of a puppet, being controlled by wires until I switched over to radio remote control. Now as you probably know, anything that can be controlled by radio remote can also be controlled by a computer from on line. There are enough examples available that no one has to take my word on it.
So when I came up with the idea of adding Robert to the Sentinels team the outline of the plan sort of sprang up fully formed.
While I try to automate as much of him and his persona as possible with A.I. I just couldnít get behind the idea of turning him loose without human oversight built into the system. As he stands right now he is a single shared persona (controlled and overseen by his Uncles) that can switch between any number of purpose designed bodies.
Those same Uncles that share the responsibility of controlling Robert also share his Admin ID on this board. They also adhere to the precepts of his persona so Robert is Robert no matter who is in control. So the Uncles as Robert check the board out pretty much 24 7.
In many ways he may be the most potentially powerful hero of all. As we make his bodies from scratch no matter what goes wrong we can fix it. So he can be completely fearless as nothing can harm his Uncles and anything else can be rebuilt or replaced.
Said Uncles can be located anywhere on line and often team up to operate his purpose built bodies in the single location he is in now. But there is the potential for extra purpose built bodies to be made and shipped all over the globe.
Then instead of a local hero we would finally have the globe spanning Super Hero you can only see now in Comics, TV and the Movies.
This looks like a job for...Superman!!! Up Up and Away!!!
