I wanted to work on capturing expressions, I thought this was a good moment. Prizes to anyone who can guess the film.

I drew this after watching a TED lecture about human interaction with machines which included a couple of interesting facts: In one experiment, people were given either a laptop computer or a simple robot which communicated with them every day over the course of a week using text to speech software. In every instance the participants connected more to the robots than to the laptops, and in some cases when it came time for the researchers to collect the machines, people were so attached to their robots that they came to the cars to say goodbye and had even given them names. People did not miss the laptops.
