Eyebots are a type of robot found in the Commonwealth in 2287.

Background

This section is transcluded from Eyebot. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

One of the more elegant creations of RobCo Industries, the EyeBot is a hovering robot designed for a variety of purposes.[1] On the surface, it was designed for giving consumers instant access to radio and television on the go. It uses a sophisticated antenna array to deliver the latest news bulletins and presidential addresses (among other things) even in subterranean areas, like subways. However, it was also outfitted with advanced facial and auditory recognition technology, making it a useful tool for surveillance and security.[1] Although the design was compact and quite sophisticated, there was still room for expansion: The Enclave attempted to create a line of superior Duraframe EyeBots at Adams Air Force Base, but eventually scrapped the program, leaving one survivor.[2] The automated bases of Hopeville and Ashton later reproduced these robots in number, creating dedicated repair and medical variants, showcasing the potential still remaining in the humble EyeBot.[3]

The variant seen in Fallout 4 appears to be specifically designed for reconnaissance and surveillance, but are still often used to broadcast information and propaganda. Both the Commonwealth Minutemen and Brotherhood of Steel sometimes utilize eyebots for such reasons.[4]

Characteristics

Eyebots are floating, spherical robots with various antennas, a large speaker on their front ends and a small, very weak laser weapon mounted underneath. Encountered throughout the wasteland, they are broadcasting radio stations, pre-War advertisement loops or just static.

Gameplay attributes

Eyebots cannot be "activated" (spoken to or pickpocketed), but they can be killed or hacked via the Robotics Expert perk. They are one of the weakest enemies in the game and can generally be destroyed with a single hit from most weapons. Unlike the eyebots encountered in previous Fallout titles, eyebots in the Commonwealth do not explode upon death.

Notable eyebots

Notes

  • With the Automatron add-on installed, the Sole Survivor can have access to their own eyebots, through the eyebot pod, which can find materials (such as adhesive) for their settlements. However, one cannot build their own eyebot with the robot workbench.
  • Even though many eyebot variants can be seen in the Automatron add-on, the eyebot cannot be customized in any way.
  • Unlike the other robots, eyebots have no modeled internals and their shell cannot be shot off.
  • Eyebots are not as frequently found in the Commonwealth as they are in the Capital Wasteland.
  • Due south of the southernmost cave, and due west from the Skylanes Flight 1665 wreckage, one will come across a lone eyebot patrolling a small section of ground in a triangular pattern. The eyebot is not hostile, does not broadcast any audible message and cannot be interacted with.

Behind the scenes

The eyebot resembles the Sputnik-era satellites, predominately the Sputnik 1, an artificial Earth satellite launched by the Soviet Union in 1957.
