For the robot character, I’m looking at toy robots form the 1950’s and 1960’s. I think the colors won’t be as bright but I like the appeal of the designs. More modern robot styles are too aerodynamic. His character is not about the specific advancements of technology or the cutting-edge of robotics. He is more of a stand-in for what society’s ideals for a futuristic vision and what we hope technology can do for us.
I want him to be friendly and likable with the capacity for both comedic gestures and emotion.
