1 M01C_Roboticist_Start_Scene 004265EB Welcome to the RobCo Research Center, where we do things little children definitely don't need to know about! I, the eminent Dr. Clara Song, PhD, will be your guide.
2 Dr. Song? You mean the award-winning researcher? The author of The Robotics of Then and Now? She's our tour guide?
3 That's right! And since you Scouts are such trustworthy young citizens, I can show you all kinds of interesting things the public doesn't know about. Sinister. She's trying to get her boss fired here by showing the Scouts things they shouldn't see.
4 Now off we go! Meet me at the first tour stop and maybe try to learn something for once.
5 M01C_Roboticist_ManagementOffices_Scene 004265E3 Alright, kids, now we get to learn about another harsh reality of the working world. When all you children grow up big and strong, you get to have a boss!
6 Bosses are smarter, better-paid individuals who tell you how to do your job. Even when they've never done it themselves. Smarter is in airquotes
7 And you have to do what they say. Even when it's something that doesn't make sense, like showing off your secret research lab to cute little Pioneer Scouts.
8 But when you pay the bills, you make the rules. That's the lesson.
9 004265E0 Alright, this concludes our tour! I'm so glad I got to show you all this secret technology we have!
10 Make sure you, your parents, and any next of kin sign the nondisclosure agreements we distribute on the way out.
11 Have a great day! And remember: loose lips sink ships!
12 M01C_Roboticist_RoboticsAssembly_Scene 004265EC Look, this is exciting! Here's where we build the robots that we design!
13 We build all our robots with interchangeable parts. That means we can switch out all kinds of things on them to give them different roles.
14 That's why your household Mr. Handy can flip your pancakes, while the Army's can fire laser beams and machine guns. And flamethrowers and rockets.
15 Just imagine all the cool things your robot could do for you if you could pay as much as the military!
16 M01C_Roboticist_EyebotStatue_Scene 004265E4 Look at this, children! It's an Eyebot! Here's a robot we actually did invent! Emphasis on "did"
17 These little guys broadcast propaganda. Have you heard propaganda before? I bet you have, even if you didn't know it!
18 Propaganda teaches us about how very evil certain ideas are. Never mind if you've heard about a few and they don't seem that bad.
19 No, all foreign ideologies are baseless and inferior. And don't let anyone tell you different.
20 M01C_Roboticist_RobobrainAssembly_Scene 004265ED And here we have something highly, highly classified. Do you know what classified means?
21 It means you should never, ever talk about it. In fact, it means we shouldn't have this posted on a sign in plain sight for all you lovely Pioneer Scouts.
22 Luckily, you kids aren't old enough to read! Right?
23 M01C_Roboticist_QualityControl_Scene 004265E5 This is our quality control center. As you can see, it's a tiny, smoke-filled room where our quality control specialists examine parts by hand.
24 Inefficient, you say? Hardly. It's not like you can trust a robot to do this kind of work!
25 And that's the lesson here, kids. Sometimes the real, tedious work needs a human touch. Even when it doesn't.
26 M01C_Roboticist_RoboticsResearchLab_Scene 004265DF Here's where we conduct research on robots. I bet this is what all you little roboticists were hoping to see on this tour.
27 Robots really are amazing. We can program them to do just about anything! But that takes experimentation.
28 In an experiment, we test an idea - called a hypothesis - to see if it works. This tour is kind of an experiment, too!
29 We're testing to see if little kids can truly appreciate the wonders of highly classified science.
33 Can you guess where I stand on this? No? Well I wouldn't expect you to. Moving on.
30 M01C_Roboticist_TortureRoom_Scene 004265E6 Well, kids, I sure didn't expect to have to tell you about this dimly lit basement. But here we are!
31 I should begin by saying that hurting people is a very bad thing, and you should never do it.
32 And we certainly never do it, even though it may sound like we're doing it down here. Emphasis on we. Muffled sounds of electric shocks in the background.
33 But sometimes a company needs to take drastic measures to innovate. And keep lucrative government contracts.
34 And really, what's more important in life than funding your livelihood?
35 Certainly not a squeamish thing like morals.
36 M01C_Roboticist_MrHandyStatue_Scene 004265E1 Here we have the lobby, reception desk, and everybody's favorite robot: Mr. Handy!
37 I bet you didn't know that RobCo developed the Mr. Handy. That's because we didn't! General Atomics did!
38 But we have added some very unique and morally questionable features to this guy over the years. So I guess that's why he's in our lobby now!
39 M01C_Roboticist_Monorail_Scene 004265EA Here's something kids like: a monorail!
40 This monorail goes all the way to Watoga, our city of the future. Some of us - who can't afford cars - cram into this baby and ride it to work every single day. Laborious emphasis on every. single. day.
41 Hey, did you know that the word monorail means that it only uses a single rail?
42 That's right! This train hangs perilously above the ground on a single, very thin rail line!
43 It's super cool! As long as you aren't afraid of heights.
44 M01C_Roboticist_CoffeeStand_Scene 004265E2 Hey, it's the coffee stand! This is where all we hardworking researchers catch a break, get some caffeine, and vent about our long, unpaid overtime hours.
45 But sometimes you just have to buckle down and work, work, work! Growing up sure sounds fun, doesn't it?
46 M01C_Roboticist_End_Scene 00417C24 Alright, this concludes our tour! I'm so glad I got to show you all this secret technology we have!
47 Make sure you, your parents, and any next of kin sign the nondisclosure agreements we distribute on the way out.
48 Have a great day! And remember: loose lips sink ships!
