Hello Fellow TRANSFORMER (http://www.TFArchive.com) Fans and Tech Fanatics:

How have you all been in 2017 already? Are any of your New Year's Resolutions coming to fruit yet?

I'd like a robot who watches my kid when I accidentally sleep in in the AM to ensure she doesn't smear diaper cream in the carpet and leaves the toothbrushes alone.

What are you?

What are you?

I am every robot that you want to own and every Human that you wish you were. :wtf: Naw, I'm just kidding about this last one; don't take it seriously or even try to figure that one out. I am really just an odd, down-to-Earth fellow who lives over here in the RVA (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richmond,_Virginia) USA (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States) and who is in his mid-forties. As you can see, I have a very active imagination, that's for sure along with a passion for all things TRANSFORMERS (of Generation One), of course, like everyone else here. By the way, I thought up some more new robotic capabilities also - how about Energon (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spark_(Transformers))/Electromagnetic (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_radiation) wave detection and music identification (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acoustic_fingerprint) software such as Spotify (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spotify)/Shazam (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shazam_(service)). It would be awesome to have a robot equipped with these electronic features as well.

Trust me, you do not want to be every human Brend wishes he was.

Trust me, you do not want to be every human Brend wishes he was.

If I don't wish to be any human does that mean he'll disappear in a puff of logic?

AHahah I would dream to have the same yes!!!

Alright now, Sades and wallapopstar; I have been dreaming of female robot maids too ever since I was a little boy - but I really don't want to get into that here since that's really a subject for a certain other forum-board to deal with. (Since this forum-board (http://www.TFArchive.com) is for General Audiences, I am going to keep this as clean as possible!) Anyway, I have some other good ideas for some other robotic capabilities that I would like to use; they have already been thought up. How about highly sophisticated IRMs (internal repair mechanisms) - and nanotech utilities (http://terminator.wikia.com/wiki/Nanotechnological_Transjector) that enable the robot to be able to control other machines, HHHHMMMM? Otherwise, everything's cool dalek and Brend; let's all stay Human!
