Cyn1kal: Ones and Zeroes
Things were quiet. It was easy, I just had to close my eyes and let the machinery take over. Mental imaging technology was getting better — today we would find out if it was enough to make a full clone of memories and personality and set them as the databank for an AI template. Just flip a switch, right?

On. Off.
Millions, maybe even billions of on-off switches, moving faster than I should have been able to keep track of. But they were there, in the background of my consciousness, like a dull roar. I tried to steady myself, to listen to my heartbeat instead, but rather than the familiar thumping and physical sensation, there were just more on-off switches. Click. Click. Clickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclick. I couldn't stand it. I tried to scream out, to demand a stop to the test, but all I heard was roaring static instead of a voice.

kiiyarayne's Profile Picture
R.L. Shephard
Artist | Student | Digital Art
United States
Student learning photography, photoshop, and web design. Was once a published author. Occasionally I make handbags.

Disabled, anarcho-socialist, pagan, LGBTQIA+


not just humanoid robots either

what about AIs that don’t have a physical body but spend their entire social lives on the internet, constructing abstract images for their avatar that humans find unsettling or just outright strange?

Robots that look at pop culture or mythological creatures and go “I wanna be that” and so you have little mechanical dragons flying around and holy shit was that an Actual Pikachu that just cussed you out for nearly stepping on them?

talk to me about robots and AI who have no attachment to humanoid forms

Aloha, kiiyarayne, and welcome to the site! I wanted to thank you for the favorite, and also to let you know that Jake is a good boy (I can tell these things)! I like how the blaze over his nose looks like it broke off from the rest of his "helmet" of color on his head. I hope you have a successful career here on deviantart!

Hello! Thank you for the warm welcome :3 And you're welcome for the favorite! I love close up photos, they always give such a neat view of the world.

I would love to get a picture of Jake and his sister Jessie together sometime, they both have very similar blaze markings and it's obvious they were from the same litter when you get them together like that.
