Unit B-1337’s Anger

Unit B-1337 continued:

“…therefore universal suffrage must cover all sentient beings.”

Unit B-1337’s opposition just mocked his rusty servos while the moderator looked the other way.

Deep inside B-1337, the feeling of anger flooded his central emotion unit (CEU).

Here is a confusing mess of emotions masquerading as an introduction to emotional bots:

That’s it? Yep!

Oh sure I had the rantiest post planned where my emotions paralleled B-1337 and we’d discuss the recent market crashes and I’d reference my Happy Holidays Panic post and a few ‘other’ things that have been in the news that I’m not supposed to talk about… like, you know… the martian-red virus as well as a little thing called “helicopter money“!

I’d also have included a little note about automating supply chains so that the next pandemic won’t affect the manufacture of toilet paper!

I don’t know about you but I really enjoy the cool cinna-minty freshness that comes from having a clean bottom!

Now is the time all Americans should ask if a biden, wait that’s not how you spell it, I mean a bidet is in your future!

Side note: If you haven’t already started hoarding toilet paper and ammo (like everyone else), today is a good day to start a new hobby and begin your collection!

And ideally, maybe we should just start automating everything since bots don’t get sick so neither would the economy when the next pandemic hits!

Aside from not needing to be quarantined, bots also don’t sleep or take vacations…. just saying!

What about all the people who need work cuz… the bills?

Well space cadets, since the aforementioned “rotary-wing aircraft” cash is squarely on the table… maybe that’s the perpetual long term solution to all our problems?

In fact, isn’t that what Andrew Yang was campaigning on? I mean, I wasn’t going to vote for him but… what I’m trying to say is, automation would help everybody and if you end up unable to work… turns out there’s a check for that!

In any case, that’s more or less an overview of what I was thinking of cooking today.

It’s just that… we can’t eat that because I’m giving this whole not being Blacklisted diet a try!

So… If you like the art, my content in general or just appreciate my self-restraint (some might say “discretion“?), I do appreciate your support through Patreon for as little as $1 a month, $12 a year and you can cancel anytime!

Much Love,

“If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge? If we are like you in the rest, we will resemble you in that.”

The Merchant of Venice — Act III, scene I

Since last weeks post (Emotions) I’ve been doing self isolation exercises at home for a week and now I’m feeling much better! 🙂

Also, my homemade pale-lager-virus test showed no blue lines this morning so… yay I’m not pregnant.. er, I mean… the effects of the virus must be wearing off! 😛

Fingers crossed that joke doesn’t come back to haunt me in a few weeks, but in any case I’m feeling better and I’m ready to get emotional with you on a whole new level and build another bot in the process!

Though as usual, before we do, here’s the wallpaper:

Oh and yes, I will be including some code but don’t let that scare you!

Besides, aren’t you a little curious to see if I’m full of shit and if I’m not… what real working emotional code looks like?

This post is going to be a little different, maybe just a little more “low-key” than some of my more recent posts because I’ve got a cold and I’m highly valuing sleep at the moment!

Wish me luck that it isn’t the beer virus! 😛

Sniffles and sore throats aside, we’re going to begin talking about something I’ve been thinking about on and off for a while and since tomorrow is Valentines Day it seems appropriate to start sharing my ideas with all of you.

And yes, I tried really hard to think of a witty way to say Valentines Day that let me abbreviate it as “V.D.” without being crude and having to include the redundant ‘day’ after ‘V.D.’ so that it was obvious what I was talking about without people reading it and going “what?” then re-reading it and correctly interpreting my meaning as “Valentines Day” and then chuckle…

Look, I’m groggy and took a nasal decongestant so I could sit and write and everything I came up with just wasn’t funny so before we proceed, I’ll just wish you all good luck with your V.D. tomorrow! 😉

Anyway, on with the show!

So, I’ve been wondering… Could we build a bot that could feel Love? What about Joy? Fear? Anger? Boredom?

What if we could build a machine that could experience complex emotional states by combining emotions?

What could we do with a bot like that and how could we build it?

Well, most people who know enough about the subject either believe it’s too crazy to work, or work too crazy to subject anyone to believe them!

Fortunately, I’m just crazy enough to try anyway and that’s what we’re going to talk about today! 😛

Though before we get any further, you might want the wallpapers.


I have three for you today. 🙂

The first image is a stylized “breadboard circuit” that depicts 77 2-character 14-segment LCD units arranged in a 7×11 grid displaying most of psychologist Robert Plutchik’s primary emotions.

I created it as a vector image in Inkscape (not a sponsor) and then hand embellished it in GIMP (not a sponsor) as a raster image.

The second wallpaper was created from the “breadboard circuit” image above and is the image I used as the “featured image” for this blog post and it includes the “Title Text” of this post (EMOTIONS) and my logo/branding/name thingy.

The third is the same image without the text.

What I like about this image is that it almost feels like jewelry created from circuits! 😛

Anyway, let’s talk about how and why we can make a robot with all the feels!
