an infiltration (or escape) you will need to pass
unnoticed by robot surveillance. Most robots will
be readily identifiable to each other through
encrypted markers. How will you convince the robots
that you are warm circuits wrapped in a thin candy
PRETEND TO BE DAMAGED
A damaged robot may exhibit strange behavior while
failing to transmit identification.
CHANGE YOUR HEAT SIGNATURE
Stuff aluminum foil in your pants. Rub your exposed
skin with cool mud. Hang a hulking piece of gold
metal around your neck and slip into an Adidas
jumpsuit. Your heat signature will not match a
healthy robot, nor will it match a healthy human
MAKE SOME NOISE
An occasional screeching beep or boop should suffice.
Make it quick and strangled; this is no audition.
MOVE LIKE A ROBOT
Early robots exhibited a trademark clumsiness
that spawned a dance called the robot. Contemporary
robots are more dexterous - unless broken. Pretend
you are either damaged machinery or a well-oiled
break-dancing machine, and pop and lock your way
into the heart of robot territory.
IF CONFRONTED KEEP MOVING AND DON'T LOOK BACK
You're just a poser, so ignore other robots and
pretend to be completely oblivious to the environment.
Keep your head down and shuffle forward with a
steady, even pace. The fate of the entire human
race may depend on it.
