#2128: New Robot
[Ponytail is standing on a raised platform with a robot behind her, talking to someone off-screen. The spherical floating robot is equipped with a grappling gun and an antenna that “zaps” a lightning bolt at the floor below it.]
Ponytail: Our robot floats using a helium sphere, which is highly charged and can induce lightning strikes.
Ponytail: It moves using a grappling gun like the hook shot from Zelda.
Off-screen voice: What is the robot for?
Ponytail: It could help with search and rescue after disasters.
[Caption below the panel:]
“It could help with search and rescue” is engineer-speak for “we just realized we need a justification for our cool robot.”
