Eyebots, alternatively stylized as EyeBots, are robots found in Appalachia.

Background

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 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][Non-game 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] Usually found near settlements or cities, 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 Eyebot.[3]

Characteristics

Eyebots are seldom hostile. They occasionally attack hostile creatures, and some Eyebots might reveal certain locations as they fly by. They can be easily defeated in battle. Eyebots are capable of carrying out a variety of other tasks as well, as seen with Rover. EyeBombs are equally flimsy, but will explode on proximity or upon taking damage.

Although most terminal and subtitle references use "Eyebot", the NPC record nameplate uses "EyeBot".

Behind the scenes

FB8 deco 301 color.pngThe following is based on unverified behind the scenes information and is speculative and may not be accurate.

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

  1. Fallout 2d20 Rulebook p.359: "The eyebot is one of the smaller robots designed by RobCo Industries. Their spherical, hovering forms are a common sight in the wasteland. Despite their compact size, they are outfitted with a number of useful technologies; long range antennas that allow them to receive radio broadcasts even in subway stations or other underground sites, facial and voice recognition for use in security applications and even a laser weapon. In pre-War America they were used to broadcast radio transmissions, announcements, and news bulletins. Now these eyebots are in use by the likes of the Brotherhood of Steel to promote propaganda and by the Minutemen for surveillance. Others can are roaming the wastes still following their original programming and broadcasting the local radio station, military chatter on repeat or mysterious messages and frequencies from unknown sources. While often friendly when encountered, they will defend themselves if attacked and the degradation to their systems leads some units to be hostile on site. "
