The Verge's home for orphaned robot babies

Share this story

These are our robot babies. They are not pretty or intelligent and they lack skin. But they are our robot babies nonetheless. Please show them love and kindness. Do not upset the robot babies, because their knowledge and experience may one day be transferable to a larger, more powerful robot grown-up. The robot grown-ups will have weapons for arms, and thick, gyrating tentacles for legs. Our punishments will be rendered by a jury of robots that review digital archives of how we treated the babies — the ugly, unfeeling, skinless babies — so please be nice.
